Market Commentary

Updated on August 23, 2019 10:34:35 AM EDT

Today’s only relevant economic release was Julys New Home Sales that showed sales of newly constructed homes fell 12.8% last month. This was a much weaker than expected but a significant upward revision to June’s sales is skewing July’s monthly change. The number of sales did come in lower than forecasts, making the report good news for bonds and mortgage rates. However, because of the revision and the fact this is not a highly important release, mortgage rates had little reaction to the news.

What is mostly driving bond trading this morning is Chairman Powell’s speech at the Jackson Hole Fed Conference. He stated that the economy has some challenges to deal with. Specifically, he noted slower economic activity in China and Germany, the potential hard Brexit where Britain leaves the European Union on October 31 without a deal made, volatile stocks and geopolitical issues. Those hurdles all could contribute to a weaker global economy that will undoubtedly affect ours to some degree, at the very least. Since bonds become more appealing to investors during weaker economic conditions, we are seeing bonds and mortgage rates react favorably to this news.

Next week has a handful of economic reports for the bond market to watch in addition to a couple of potentially influential Treasury auctions. The week starts with the pretty important Durable Goods Orders report that gives us a measurement of manufacturing sector strength. There are also some other relevant reports that can cause changes to mortgage rates scheduled throughout the week. Look for details on all of next week’s activities in Sunday evening’s weekly preview.

CPU Refinancing Playa Vista

Hi all,

I have been asked over the past 2 years about mortgage refinancing on a CPU in Playa Vista.  I was introduced to CPU condo's in Playa Vista in 2017. 

The refinancing of Controlled Price Units on condo's can be complex.  I have navigated the waters with over 2 dozen successful CPU refinances on condo's in Playa Vista.

I have been able to use the current market value, not the resale value, to help owners eliminate mortgage insurance.

Here are some yelp reviews:  (google: CPU Refinance Yelp)

"I just completed a refinance with Dave after he was recommended by several neighbors. Purchased a condo in 2017 and had to initially go with the lender that was recommended by the builder. I was paying PMI, which would be required for a few more years.

Dave was able to help me with a refinance and the process only took 2 weeks. He got rid of the PMI. As a result, monthly payment has decreased
saving me thousands in the long run."

Dave LaRose helped us to refinance our mortgage in Playa Vista this year. He got us out of PMI and lowered our monthly payments by over $500. He has taken the time to really know the ins and outs of the mortgage business and even complicated rules and regulations of CPU purchases. Highly recommend him and his team!

I don't even know where to start with reviewing Dave. He is an incredibly kind and intelligent man and did a wonderful job helping us refinance our mortgage on a CPU! From the first phone call, Dave was very informative and made sure both my husband and I understood every step. He sends over a quick text right before every docusign and is available for questions 24/7. He had us locked in at a better rate than we already had and with some changes in the market and a little time to spare before closing, he got us an even LOWER rate! We did not even have to ask him to do this. He genuinely wants his clients to get the best deal possible and works tirelessly to make sure that happens. We have already recommended him to several of our neighbors and will continue to do so. He made the refinance process stress-free and dare I say it... EASY! From now on, Dave is our one and only broker for all of our mortgage needs!

 

If you are looking to refinance your CPU, please reach out.
