One of the finest loan representatives in the Jackson Hole area is T.R. Pierce from the Bank of Jackson Hole. T.R. Pierce is the senior vice president loan officer at the largest “local” bank in Jackson Hole and for the past few years has been educating the Jackson Hole real estate agents on the current local mortgage rates. As part of our weekly updates we will be posting T.R.’s report about once a week. This should give readers a good idea of local rates. We of course recommend calling T.R. Pierce, SVP Residential Loans, 307.734.8111 for an appointment if you would like additional information on mortgages. Today’s report is below:
Conforming interest rates rise as pending home sales increase for the third straight month… the NAR reported that pending home sales rose 6.7% in April after a 3.2% increase in March. Homes under contract increased 32.6% in the Northeast, 9.8% in the Midwest, 1.8% in the West and only 0.2% in the South. This morning Wall Street is showing some caution after yesterday’s rally which was spurred by upbeat reports on manufacturing, construction spending and consumer spending.
