Equifax® Data Breach

VITEK Mortgage Group is excited to announce our new branch location in Redding, CA. VITEK is no stranger to Redding with a previous successful branch from 2003 – 2011. Mark Gazzigli, VITEK’s former Redding Branch Manager, has returned home to VITEK as Regional Manager to help support the growth of VITEK in the region, along with the needs of our borrowers.

Mark’s decision to return to VITEK was, “driven by the company’s core values, competitive pricing, and unwavering commitment to their borrowers and business partners. I am extremely excited about the opportunity to realign with a company that not only shares my vision of an excellent loan experience for the borrower, but has proven again and again they have the resources, knowledge, and platform to close loans on time.”

VITEK President, Harry Duncan, says, “We’re excited for this time of growth and once again to be established in Redding. Our new location will provide us additional resources and opportunities to grow and better serve the home-financing needs of our clients.”

Weekly Mortgage Market Watch

Friday, March 18th, 2011

What a week- with all that’s going on in the world, wow!! Then there’s the big full moon that goes off tomorrow night. I think it’s going to be the closest to earth that it’s been in the last 18 years, what will happen next?

World events overshadowed domestic news in driving mortgage rates this week. The disaster in Japan and the violence in the Middle East helped push mortgage rates a little lower. Stronger than expected US economic data had just a small impact.

The current environment is rare, in that unrelated events in different parts of the world are exerting such a strong influence on US mortgage rates. While global economic growth rates are always a significant factor, they generally shift at a gradual pace. What makes the disaster in Japan so unusual, is it produced a very abrupt decline in the economic outlook for Japan. Slower economic growth in Japan will likely contribute to slower US growth, which is favorable for mortgage rates. Uncertainty in the Middle East is also favorable for mortgage rates, as it leads to higher oil prices which slows economic growth. Changing conditions in the Middle East pushed rates in both directions throughout the week as violence increased in Bahrain, but may now be diminishing in Libya.

A week with a packed economic calendar and a Fed meeting was pushed to the background by the news from other countries. This week’s generally stronger than expected economic data might otherwise have caused mortgage rates to move higher. Rising food and energy prices produced higher than expected inflation readings in February. Core CPI inflation, which excludes food and energy, rose just 1.1% from one year ago, but it has been moving higher in recent months. The Fed statement contained no surprises and produced little reaction.

Have a great weekend and if you or anyone you know is looking to purchase or refinance a home, please keep me in mind!!
