Thirty year mortgage rates are up slightly this week in Freddie Mac’s Weekly Survey, but are relatively stable in light of the increased volatility in the bond markets. The 30 Year Fixed Rate Mortgage was at 3.12% in today’s Freddie Mac survey and the 15 Year Fixed Rate Mortgage was at 2.34%. While still low by historical standards, rates may rise over the longer term because of inflation, upward pressure on bond rates and other interest rates, and the anticipated ending of new purchases of mortgage bonds by the Federal Reserve in March.
Freddie Mac’s Weekly Survey was released this morning with its most recent assessment of the mortgage rate landscape. See the details of their survey below.
