Brief note from the desk of

Miguel Velazco Sr., MBA

Week of: Monday, November 21, 2011

Present Market Conditions

Monday’s bond market has opened in positive territory following an early stock sell-off. The stock markets are reacting negatively to the weekend failure of the debt-reduction Super Committee and comments from overseas that raise more concern about the global economy. As a result, the Dow is currently down 255 points while the Nasdaq has lost 56 points. The bond market is currently up 16/32, but we will likely see an improvement of only .125 of a discount point in this morning’s mortgage rates. If the major stock indexes extend their current losses, we may be in for another small improvement later today. However, I don’t believe there is much of a chance of getting a sizable improvement in rates today.

Expectations

Tomorrow’s economic data is the first revision to the 3rd Quarter Gross Domestic Product (GDP). It is expected to show little change from last month's preliminary reading of a 2.5% annual rate of expansion. The GDP measures the total of all goods and services produced in the U.S. and is considered to be the best measurement of economic activity. Current forecasts call for a reading of approximately 2.4%, meaning that there was slightly less economic growth during the third quarter than previously thought. This would be good news for the bond market and mortgage rates, but it will likely take a larger decline to improve mortgage rates Tuesday morning.

Tomorrow also has the first of the week’s two Treasury auctions that may influence bond trading enough to affect mortgage rates. There will be an auction of 5-year Treasury Notes tomorrow and 7-year Notes on Wednesday. Neither of these sales will directly impact mortgage pricing, but they can influence general bond market sentiment. If the sales go poorly, we could see broader selling in the bond market that leads to upward revisions in mortgage rates. However, strong sales usually make bonds more attractive to investors and bring more funds into the bond market. The buying of bonds that follows often translates into lower mortgage rates. Results of the sales will be posted at 1:00 PM ET auction day, so look for any reaction to come during afternoon hours.

Guidance

  • Overall, I believe that we will see more volatility in the markets and mortgage rates the first couple days of the week as we head into the Thanksgiving Holiday. The most important day will probably be Wednesday, while the least important will be Friday. Today’s significant stock selling hasn’t caused much movement in mortgage rates yet, so no need to label today as a potential candidate. As we have seen recently, the markets can get pretty active at any time, so please CALL US.

What my clients are saying  

Miguel is an excellent professional; he is the best real estate agent that I could have known. I met him a in the middle of my plans to sell my home. He was a rare to find personality on these days. He is a very dynamic person and never leaves behind what can be done now. He is very efficient, totally results-oriented. He gave me the best orientation before, during and after the sale of my home. My right arm. He was always pending of each step to be taken, the promotion, the offers, the deadlines and terms of the sale, the inspections, the Title Office, the contract, closing the sale, there was not a moment when he did not stop orienting me. And of course thanks to him I sold my house above the price originally offered and in less than a month. If you don't hire Miguel for the sale of your house, forgive me, but you're a fool.”

~ RECOMMENDATION LETTER FROM A CEO

To: Mr. Miguel Velazco RE/MAX Dear Miguel, On behalf of my mother, sister and myself, I want to thank you so much for your undying efforts to sell our property from our family trust. My mother has peace of mind & she is thrilled. We knew from the start this property would be a difficult sale due to its condition and the mitigating circumstances surrounding it. You never wavered in your efforts to sell it, and you did everything in your power to administer the terms of the sale as we requested. To your credit, you never asked us to accept an offer or terms we were not comfortable with like so many other realtors might have done just to accomplish a quick sale. Every decision you helped us make was with our best interest at heart. Your honesty, professionalism, and determination set you apart from other agents in your field. Thank you Miguel, we will never sell another property without your representation. Sincerely, Diana Wyllie [DWyllieEnt@aol.com] Irene Liranzo Sandra Seat

 

~ PROBATE

Recently I contacted Miguel's team in order to sell my home. Although market adverse value/condition of house, Miguel's team not only sold my home at a price I was comfortable with but the team did it all inside of 39 days from listing to close! They are very organized, knowledgeable and detail oriented. I would not even consider attempting another real estate transaction without them.

 

~ Country Club

"I have not found another Agent that is half the quality... he is the asset you want on your side. MIGUEL is a prompt and efficient "go getter". I have used him twice to sell and purchase a home and our last sale took just 35 days from list to close. THE TEAM is extremely knowledgeable about what needs to happen and when, he is also not afraid to push if others are falling behind. For any person expecting professionalism in their Realtor. The Meltzers"
