Consumer News Publication Launches Amid Plunging Mortgage Rates

DALLAS — (June 6, 2011) /PRNewswire/ Interest rates have fallen each week for nearly two months, stand at the lowest level this year and are hovering near record lows. The launch of a new consumer mortgage news publication will help current and prospective borrowers take advantage of these low rates while giving them an improved understanding of available options and the mortgage process., a leading paid-subscription source of online news and data for the mortgage industry, has launched a free publication for current homeowners and consumers considering a home purchase.

Located at, the new online publication includes full wire-service stories written by journalists from many of the nation’s biggest newspapers and articles authored by MortgageDaily’s own reporters.

The formal launch comes as the 30-year fixed rate has fallen each of the past eight weeks, according to the U.S. Mortgage Market Index from Mortech Inc. and Last week’s 30-year rate of 4.651% was the lowest this year.

A disappointing employment report helped bond yields fall Friday, likely leaving mortgage rates even lower in this week’s upcoming reports.

Continued instability in the Mideast, concerns about European economies and a floundering economic recovery at home have the prospect of Treasury yields — and corresponding mortgage rates — hanging in historically low territory even longer.

The decline in rates, combined with increasingly low home prices in many parts of the country, is a boon for the ailing real estate market because of the rising number of renters who see homeownership as a more affordable option — especially after factoring in tax benefits.

With lending requirements having become more stringent since the financial crisis, consumers who understand the real estate finance process can make better-informed decisions that lead to the most favorable mortgage terms.

Federal requirements are rapidly evolving on a daily basis for loan originators, mortgage bankers and servicers, and the new publication can help consumers better navigate this increasingly complex market.

The business-to-consumer news venture will be supported by advertising.
