Since the Fed increased the Federal Funds rate last week by .75% what has happened to mortgage rates?

  • US treasuries have dropped almost 500 basis points (3.483 at its peak – June 14th) to as of today almost (3.012) as I write this today at 11:15am.
  • Mortgage rates have dropped almost .5% in 1 week’s time since the Fed announcement.

What rates did increase with the Fed announcement?

  • If you have credit cards, you will see an increase in your credit card rates and payments.
  • You will also see an increase in your HELOC (home equity line of credits) the prime rate on HELOC’s is now 4.75% and is a variable rate.

Mortgage Rates are not tied to the Federal Funds rate, they are tied to the Treasury yields.
