Mortgage Rates Stay Flat to Begin Busy Week

Mortgage rates stayed in line with recent 4-month lows today.  In some cases, there was a slight movement in the closing costs associated with prevailing rates, but the rates themselves didn’t change.  The most prevalent Conforming 30yr fixed quote (best-execution) remained at 4.125%.

Every day since last week’s jobs report has been relatively calm for mortgage rates.  Even then, there was reason to believe that we could be lacking some direction until the next major round of economic data came in.  That culminates in next week’s jobs report (which is occurring so close to the previous report due to shutdown-related rescheduling), but the current week can certainly play a role.
