Mortgage Rate Update September 29, 2014

Mortgage rates continue to improve after rising in mid-September. If I told you that mortgage rates are benefiting from geopolitical tension this morning you’d likely assume that headlines regarding conflicts in Ukraine or Syria are the cause.  In fact, Hong is grabbing attention this morning. Despite government calls to disperse pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong […]
