Brief note from the desk of Miguel Velazco, Sr. MBA

Week of: Monday, November 28, 2011

Present Market Conditions

Monday’s bond market has opened down sharply due to a very strong opening in stocks. The stock markets are reacting favorably to encouraging news from overseas and strong preliminary sales figures from Black Friday, pushing the Dow higher by 315 points and the Nasdaq up 85 points. The bond market is currently down ( higher mortgage rates) as investors shift funds away from safety and into stocks. This will likely push this morning’s mortgage rates higher by approximately .250 percent.

Watch the major stock indexes for mortgage rates direction today. If they give back a good portion of this morning’s gains, we could see bond prices improve from current levels and mortgage rates revise slightly lower. The rest of the week brings us few more pieces of economic news that may affect mortgage rates, some of which is considered highly important to the financial and mortgage markets. This means we have other forces to drive bond trading and mortgage pricing other than stock strength or weakness. As the week progresses, the data gets more important, so it is quite possible that the most movement in rates has yet to come.


November's Consumer Confidence Index (CCI) will be released late tomorrow morning by the Conference Board. It gives us a measurement of consumer willingness to spend. If consumer confidence is rising, analysts believe that consumers are more apt to make larger purchases, essentially fueling economic growth. This makes long-term securities such as mortgage-related bonds less attractive to investors and usually leads to higher mortgage rates. Analysts are expecting to see a sizable increase in confidence from last month's level, meaning consumers were more optimistic about their own financial situations this month than they were last month. A weaker reading than the 44.0 that is expected would be good news for mortgage rates, while a stronger reading could push mortgage rates higher tomorrow.


Overall, the most important day of the week is Friday with monthly employment figures being released, but we may also see sizable movement in rates Thursday. Friday's employment data could cause a significant change in rates, but Thursday's ISM index is also one of the more important reports we see each month. If Friday's data reveals stronger than expected results, we may see rates spike higher after its release, possibly erasing any gains from the week. It will probably be the key to rates moving lower or higher for the week. I suspect it will be a fairly active week for the markets and mortgage pricing, especially the latter part, so it would be prudent to maintain contact with us as your Real Estate professional.

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.”

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 [] Irene Liranzo Sandra Seat



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.

"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"
