TV Interview : Loan Fees Rising, Mortgage Rates Rising, Housing On The Mend In 2011


I returned to the First Business television studios this week to talk mortgages and housing.

In 3 minutes, our interview goes deep on:

  • Why conforming mortgage applicant will pay higher loan costs in 2011
  • The Fed's QE2 program to lower mortgage rates, and whether its working
  • Why mortgage rates are trending toward 6 percent, longer-term

The mortgage market and the housing market are in recovery. 2011 will tell a much different story from 2010. If you're planning to buy a home or refinance one in late-2011, consider moving up your timeframe.

When summer gets here, the "best deals" on homes -- and mortgage rates -- should be gone.

Call or with your follow-up questions. I answer all my own email personally.
