What is going on in this week’s show?

Debbie Marcoux, the Mortgage Mom, brings in Co-Host, Heidi Slagle-Points, to talk Lending and Mortgage. They start off the show with their segment “Catching Up with Mom” where they both reflect on their weekends. Debbie asks her sound editor, Drewin Young, to write another jingle for her toll-free number.

Debbie gives a shot out to Seattle, WA and Las Vegas, NV since she is now on radio stations in those states.

She offers to interview, both on camera and on radio, any previous client willing to talk about their experience with her company. What better way to get the word out then real testimonials! YOU too can be on the show, just give Mortgage Mom Radio a call!

Since the show is interactive, the questions asked by listeners this week were as follows:

Debbie will take your questions “live” during the show. Text “MOM” to 844-935-3634 to receive the link to get in each week. You must call in during that hour while they are streaming live if you would like to be part of the show.

Debbie and Heidi talk current interest rates and Pace Hero Loans (loans for energy efficient improvements). Heidi drills down on this subject of Pace Hero Loans and expands on the benefits of refinancing them to lower monthly payments and monthly property taxes. Debbie then gets very detailed on how this Pace Hero Loan process works by giving different types of scenarios.

Wednesday, July 14th, 2021 – On today’s segment, Debbie brings in Loan Officer and Real-Estate Agent Heather Barkley-Kilpatrick to discuss important topics. They start off the show by answering comments and questions “live.” Debbie states that her show is FREE and that the goal of her show is to get her audience and clients educated on the Mortgage & Loan industry.

Debbie also makes an important announcement that her company is NOT affiliated with Movement Mortgage any longer for they are now with JMJ Financial. To avoid confusion and solicitation, Debbie asks that her audience members and clients should always contact her directly.

They talk about Bank Statement Loans and how beneficial that program can be for people that are self-employed.

Debbie explains a recent incident they had with a client after all the leg work had been done on the client’s loan. The story goes: The house the client was trying to buy was in complete shambles, but nobody knew that until the loan was on the verge of getting processed. Unfortunately, the client neglected to bring up the condition of the house. This situation can tie the hands of the lender. This incident also brings up the subject of Renovation Loans and how important it is for clients to always be upfront with their buying plans. Debbie claims that even if the house needs minimal remodeling, this needs to be disclosed to the lender. Debbie and her team will always lead her clients down the proper path if the clients are upfront and honest about their situation.

Debbie and Heather say that it is always a good time to buy, especially if you are buying a home to live in it. Real-estate is for the long term.

Wednesday, July 7th, 2021 – On today’s show, Debbie brings in Team Member and Loan Assistant Heidi Slagle-Points once again to talk about the Mortgage/Lending industry. They start off the show with their segment “Catching Up With Mom” where they both reflect on their 4th of July weekend .

Heidi then asks the audience and future buyers to not pay off their debt if it’s already being included on their loan. This will substantially delay the process due to the tremendous amount of extra paperwork, etc..

A Look Into the Markets

 

 

As we enter the second half of 2021, we want to review where we are with the economy, rates, and what to look for in the second half of the year. The 10-year note yield, a proxy for long-term rates, is hovering near 1.45%, matching multi-month lows. This has helped keep mortgage rates near 3%, below many economist expectations.

What happened? Why are rates still low, providing yet another opportunity for would-be homeowners? The bond market is forward-looking and is seeing slower progress on the job creation front. At the moment, there are still over 9M job openings, a record high. Additionally, while fears of higher and sustained inflation are all over the place, the bond market is currently telling us the fears are misguided. If future inflation is to be higher and persistent, rates would already be creeping higher.

This does not mean it’s clear sailing ahead for continued low rates. Over the next couple of months, we will be watching both the inflation a nd jobs data to determine when the Fed might start tapering bond purchases.

There are rumors amongst Wall Street that the Federal Reserve will start tapering mortgage bonds purchases first, meaning they will gradually buy fewer bonds. When the Fed mentions they will start buying less, that may be the start to higher mortgage rates. The main reason is mounting pressure to start buying fewer bonds and ultimately stop buying them all together, which means rates in the second half of 2021 are likely to be higher than they are right now.
