Rates As Of July 6, 2022
Buckle up, the second half of 2022 has begun. At the tail end of quarter number two, the Fed increased interest rates by 75 basis points - the most by the U.S. central bank since 1994. This increase triggered scrambling and movement in the CRE market followed by an "over the weekend" spike of 24 basis points - its biggest move since March 2020. The 10-year yield continued to climb, peaking at 3.49% in mid-June (a high not seen since April 2011).
Back in July of 2021, the U.S. 10-year Treasury was at 1.48%, 10-year Swap at 1.47%, 1-month LIBOR at 0.10% and Prime Rate was at 3.25%. Fast forward 12 months, index rates are generally 1.50% higher across the board. Despite the sharp increase in rates, historical data shows current yields are at similar levels as 2018 and the first half of 2019. Additionally, due to the slight pullback the last few days, this could be a great time to take advantage and lock in a lower rate.
