Today's Mortgage Rates
Mortgage Rates Flatten Back Out
Jun 28 2018, 4:43PM


Mortgage rates haven't been too interested in making big moves recently.  

Today was no exception.  In fact, most lenders' rate quotes would be indiscernible from yesterday's.  

The absence of movement could be good or bad, depending on your perspective.  On a positive note, the absence of movement means rates are right in line with the lowest levels seen since the Italian political issues in late May.  The other side of the coin is that nearly any day in the past 4 months has seen higher rates than nearly any day in the past 4 years.  Trade-offs!

As for economic data and scheduled events (things that have historically had an impact on rates), today brought the final reading of Q1 GDP.  That might sound like a fairly important report.  After all, GDP is one of the only economic reports with enough name recognition to make it to the evening news.  But markets actually don't care too much about a mere revision to data that's arguably stale compared to other alternatives.  Specifically, a "final" GDP reading (there are 3: advance, preliminary, and final) refers to economic activity that happened more than 3 months ago by the time it comes out.  As such, financial markets will long since have found ways to get a read on economic activity and trade it accordingly.

The Top 50 Luxury Real Estate Markets with Updated Medium Home Values

The definition of the word "mansion" varies but in U.S. real estate terms, it generally defined as single family residence of more than 8,000 square feet. Mega Mansion range from 20,000 sq,ft. and Super Mansions over 50,000 sq.ft. Until the mid 20th century most "mansions" would have a hall, two or three salons or drawing rooms, library, billiards room, ball room, dining room, breakfast room, morning room, study and numerous bedrooms but only 2-3 bathrooms.
