Will A Trump Administration Cause Rates to Rise?

Since November’s election,  there have been many questions surrounding Trump policies and how they will affect Americans. One of the most common questions has been: “How will  the housing market be affected?”


Speculation & debate have surrounded the basic question of “Will A Trump Administration inflate interest rates?”

The Washington Post states that concerns come from “Trump’s lack of housing policy proposals.” While Fox highlights that “The other side of the argument is that the mortgage interest deduction helps homeowners by lowering the cost of their interest on an after-tax basis. This deduction usually benefits first-time home buyers the most.” Despite the uncertainty & various opinions, there are a few facts to keep in mind when it comes to the Trump effect.

The Federal Reserve is a huge factor where mortgage rates lie, along with the inflation of the economy. The President alone cannot solely change the housing market, however, his policies can shape the direction in which the market leans. No one person can set the mortgage rates.

Donald’s policies on issues such as deportation & the Housing Department will set the tone for the direction in which the housing market proceeds. We could see an increase of costs for building a home if Trump sticks to his strict stance on deporting undocumented immigrants. The construction industry relies heavily on undocumented immigrants to reduce building costs through affordable labor. By having to pay more in labor costs, construction companies will have to offset the costs by charging the client (you) more.

We do not know the policies of Dr. Ben Carson, but what we do know is that his appointment as HUD Secretary could affect your monthly mortgage payment. As Secretary, Carson has the power to raise or lower FHA mortgage insurance premiums, which could increase or reduce your overall payment.

All we can do is wait and see what the future holds for us. However, there are a few outcomes that we can expect. Deduction of taxes through a freer market, home purchase costs to fluctuate, and increased mortgage interest rates.

In result, it’s challenging to predict exactly how Trump will affect the housing market, but you can prepare yourself by finding out what your options are for your mortgage.  Don’t start panicking just yet; it’s not too late to save yourself some money on your mortgage. With all indications pointing towards climbing interest rates, now is the time to act.

Vida Joven Orphanage & Global Equity Finance


Partners,” a term used to describe a multitude of the type of relationships we can share with people.  “One associated with another, especially in action,” as Merriam-Webster defines it.

“Someone who participates in an activity or game with another person,” is how The Oxford English Dictionary identifies it.

The question for our company was how do we identify the term?

We defined it as an opportunity to establish and nurture a human connection on a global level.

On January 30th, 2016, the partnership between Vida Joven Orphanage and Global Equity Finance was established.

The Vida Joven Orphanage, located in Tijuana, is dedicated to housing, educating, and caring for 30 children between the ages of 2-16.  Over a 3 month period, our staff teamed-up, planned, and fundraised a visit to the children at their home.

Over a few months, the staff at Global Equity Finance worked to raised money, shopped for the kids, and collected donations.  Eagerly, volunteers stuffed the van with goodies for the children and made the trek across the border.

Along with new wardrobes, books, & toys, each child was given a box with their name painted on the lid.  With the help of our volunteers, the children creatively, and adorably, decorated the box to represent things they liked.

Even though these children are dealing with great adversity, the fun brought to them by these simple gifts and activities inspired our volunteers.  Their new messily painted boxes and sparkly fairy wings united us.

Building team & community relationships strengthened the already present sentiments of teamwork and support within the Global Equity Finance family.
