Investor Mortgage Report – Week of March 18, 2024





Fix and flip loans
Another week of what will the Fed do.

This week has the potential to open the door for rates to move even higher, or to settle back down a bit, depending on how Wednesday’s Fed meeting and press conference play out.

What’s affecting rates this week:

  • Fed meeting: Wednesday at 2pm ET, the Fed is expected to leave policy rates unchanged, but will signal what may come at future meetings in its policy statement.
  • Fed rate forecasts: At this meeting, Fed members will make their anonymous forecasts for where policy rates will end this year and the next few years. The last projection was for three Fed rate cuts in 2024, and if that falls to two cuts it could pressure mortgage rates higher.
  • Powell press conference: Fed Chair Jerome Powell’s press conference at 2:30pm ET Wednesday is likely to cause volatility in mortgage rates, causing lender repricing and setting the direction for rates over the next few weeks.
