Market Script (PEG)

Weekly scripts enabling you to facilitate discussion about the market with your customers and referral sources.

What is PEG?

“What do you think rates are going to do?” This is a common question Loan Officers must frequently answer.

At XINNIX, we believe professional loan officers should respectfully and directly answer this key client question to ensure maximum customer satisfaction. Why? Because you never get a second chance to make an excellent first impression. The confidence, manner, content, and concise nature in which this question is answered is critical to gaining a customer’s “buy in”.

PEG is an acronym that stands for:

    • Present (current market conditions)
    • Expectations (industry expert’s forecast)
    • Guidance (personal, client specific advice)

When you exude personal confidence, communicate with clarity and provide brief, accurate and relevant market information to your clients, you will differentiate yourself as a true professional. Our weekly market script will help you consistently deliver a professional response to your client’s important market question and you will gain a tremendous opportunity to showcase your professionalism!

Week of March 1, 2021

Present Market Conditions

Attributed to Sam Khater, Chief Economist.

“Optimism continues as the economy slowly regains its footing, thus affecting mortgage rates,” said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s Chief Economist. “Though rates continue to rise, they remain near historic lows. However, when combined with demand-fueled rising home prices and low inventory, these rising rates limit how competitive a potential homebuyer can be and how much house they are able to purchase.”

Expectations

Major focus will continue to be on factors outside the financial markets as people continue watching for news on Covid cases and vaccine updates. This week will bring us quite a bit of information to take in. Monday kicks things off when it brings us the ISM National Manufacturing  Index. Wednesday then follows up with the ISM National Services Index. Friday finishes up the week with the always important monthly Employment report detailing the number of jobs, unemployment rate, and wage inflation.

Guidance

It’s a great time to be in the market for a mortgage! With rates still very low and the economy heating up, you’ll want to make sure to take advantage of this great time to buy.
