The Fed announced the fourth interest rate hike of the year today. June’s 0.75% hike was the largest rise since 1994, and the combined increase of 150 basis points over June and July represents the largest increase in Fed rates since the early 1980s.
But Why Did Mortgage Rates in Tacoma improve today?
Mortgage rates are typically priced each day with a forward looking perspective. Meaning they are set with what the market expects to them to be in the next 6 months. When that expectation changes, rates will become more volitle until the market stablizes. So when the Federal Reserve increased rates today, the market was already expecting that to happen and then once it did, interest rates improved.
I would expect interest rates to remain at these levels now until the markets startsto process if more rate hikes are coming or if it looks like the Fed job has been done and our economy starts to cool down.
