St Louis Real Estate – St Louis Mortgage Rates still low; higher rates coming though?

Paramount Mortgage Company - St Louis

Last Friday’s suprisingly strong payroll figures likely reinforced for many investors that the next time the Fed makes a change to their monetary policy strategy-it will likely to raise short-term interest rates.  The actual date of such an event may be months away-but an increasing number of “stronger than expected”  economic reports are making it difficult for mortgage interest rates to move lower.   A growing number of business economists believe the U.S. central bank’s policy’s are too stimulative and expect the Federal Reserve to raise benchmark interest rates within six months.
 
The Fed has said continued high rates of unemployment and low inflation warrant holding rates exceptionally low for an extended period. Still, reports show the economy is recovering gradually, and some policy makers believe the Fed should begin to prepare markets for the beginning of the process of tightening financial conditions.
