By now you know that the Fed raised their rate by 0.25% this week. On the day that happened, mortgage rates (which had been getting worse over the previous week) actually moved lower after the Fed’s announcement. It wasn’t a dramatic, life altering change; just a serendipitous occurrence that helped a few clients get what they needed. Like many aspects of life, the markets move in mysterious ways sometimes. If we could all tell the future, we might make different daily decisions. Since we can’t, we just do the best we can with what we have and hope for the best. I hope that you enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day and have a pleasant spring weekend!
