Should We Worry about the 30 Year Fixed Mortgage
Calabria Used a 30-Year Fixed Mortgage
Investigative reporting done by The Wall Street Journal has shown that nominee Calabria actually has a 30-year fixed loan on his current residence, which was bought back in 2010. At that time the rate range for these types of loans were anywhere from 4.23% to 5.10%. Rates did drop after that, and he may or may not have taken advantage of a re-finance, another reason these loans and their terms are so popular.
In addition to this it is worth noting that Calabria’s public testimony has no mention of these loans in his prepared remarks. He also re-affirmed that he will be serving Congress and not imposing his own view on how things should be done. While some of this should be expected no matter what when it comes to public hearings and testimonies, it does seem like this is a topic that would come up if a major part of his vision was putting these loans on the chopping blog.
All Smoke Or Is There Any Fire?
As always, it’s hard to know for sure how this is going to work until everyone is in place and actually on the job. While it makes sense to have concern, but at the end of the day based on the reporting right now, this is probably more of unnecessary worry than actual legitimate concern for the pro-30 year loan crowd. In today’s economy few want to take the risk of big or wholesale changes unless they really are confident in this being a necessary change to avert disaster as well as having a clear plan in place to defend against public criticism or importance. The idea that a loan program that is involved in 90% of home purchases & 80% of all mortgages will change or disappear overnight. Even if an adjustment is made away from these loans, this is definitely going to be a long-term shift. That makes the “sudden disappearance” of these loans very unlikely. In the end a major point to consider is that most homeowners only stay on a property for 5-10 years before they move to a different property. Paying more for an interest rate they won’t keep for close to 30 years just doesn’t make sense.
