Global Banks Unite in Unprecedented Rate Cuts

Ben Bernanke and the Fed brought financial aid to the streets, lowering the Federal Funds Rate and Discount Rate by 0.50%. In an unprecedented emergency move, central banks across the globe joined in lowering interest rates.

This move follows Washington's passing of the $700 billion Rescue Plan. From Wall Street to Main Street, a common concern has been heard by Washington. "We need money... no, let me rephrase that...we need cheap money."

Rates Could Rise From Here
Home loan rates have benefited from the weakness in the financial markets. Fixed rate mortgages remain very attractive. However, the Fed lowers short term interest rates to shore up financial markets. This could cause home loan rates to rise in the coming weeks and months if confidence returns to the stock markets.

ARM Holders Take Notice!
Anyone that has an Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM), take note. The London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) has soared from uncertainty in financial companies...And six million home loans in the United States are tied to LIBOR which determines the interest rate at the time of adjustment.

If you know someone with an ARM, let them know potential trouble lies ahead and the time to act is now.

What Should You Do Now?
Call me. We can go over your situation to determine how you can benefit from the actions. I look forward to hearing from you.
