Current 30 Year Conventional Mortgage Rates
As we head into the holiday weekend, mortgage interest rates seem to be staying fairly consistent, rising only.06% over last week.
Said Sean Becketti, Chief Economist for Freddie Mac:
“Overseas events are generating significant day-to-day volatility in interest rates. Nonetheless, the week-to-week impact on most rates was modest — the 30-year mortgage rate increased just 6 bps, to 4.08 percent. The MBA composite index of mortgage applications fell 4.7 percent in response to what is now three consecutive weeks of mortgage rates over 4 percent. Other measures, however, confirmed continued strength in housing — pending home sales rose 0.9 percent, exceeding expectations, and the Case-Shiller house price index recorded another solid increase.”

What does this mean for you?
It might seem like these changes aren’t that big of a deal, but they’re part of a trend. 59% of experts polled by Bankrate expect interest rates to keep rising in the coming weeks. So, as we’ve been saying for months at this point, if you’re thinking about applying for a mortgage or locking in a rate, it’s probably best to do it sooner than later.
