The U.S. economic recovery’s pace has fueled inflation worries and led to chatter that the Federal Reserve would consider hiking interest rates and taper bond buying later this year. However, Fed Chair Jay Powell has repeatedly shot down talks of raising rates, indicating the Fed would not consider increases unless inflation stayed above 2% for an extended period.

The average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage remained under 3% for a third consecutive week, and economic data sent mixed signals about which direction rates might head in the near term.

Consumer prices increased 5% in May, the fastest since the financial crisis. Economists generally agreed that the rapid inflation surge is due to temporary factors that will ease up as the recovery continues and the economy returns to normal. The Fed believes inflationary pressures will ease in the months ahead.

Continual floating of longer-term and brand new files, while locking interest rates in time for purchasing loans, is recommended.


美国经济复苏的步伐加剧了通胀担忧,并引发了关于美联储将在今年晚些时候考虑加息和缩减债券购买的传言。 但美联储主席杰伊鲍威尔一再否认加息的言论,表明除非通胀长期保持在 2% 以上,否则美联储不会考虑加息。

5 月份消费者价格同比上涨 5%,为金融危机以来最快。 不过,经济学家普遍认为,推动通胀快速飙升的大部分原因是暂时性因素,随着经济复苏的继续和疫情冲的恢复正常,这些因素将缓和。 此外,美联储也认为通胀压力将在未来几个月缓解。

Loans are subject to credit and collateral approval. Advertised rates are based on a set of loan assumptions including a borrower with excellent credit history and optimal loan characteristics. Your final interest rate and annual percentage rate (APR) may differ depending on your individual transaction’s specific characteristics, and certain products may not be available for your situation. Several determining factors include, but are not limited to, the state of the property location, loan amount, documentation type, loan type, occupancy type, property type, loan to value, and credit score.

APR reflects the cost of credit over the term of the loan expressed as an annual rate. For mortgage loans, APR may include the interest rate, discount points (also referred to as “points”), and other charges or fees (such as mortgage insurance and origination fees), but does not necessarily take into account other loan-specific finance charges you may be required to pay.
