Mortgage Rates March Higher

Freddie Mac released their Prime Mortgage Market Survey today showing mortgage rates continuing to trend higher.

Historically, our rates are still very low. Don’t believe me? Check this out. [Read more…]

Mortgage interest rates moving higher

This morning, Freddie Mac released their weekly report on the direction of conforming mortgage rates. The graph from the Prime Mortgage Market Survey is quite telling. Mortgage rates have been pushing higher for the last 6 months. As the economy improves, it would be likely to see rates continue in this direction.  The 30 year fixed is up 0.44 in rate from the low of 3.78 recorded in September 2017 and has not been reported this high since last March.  Click here for quote with current mortgage rates.

Freddie Mac’s Weekly Mortgage Survey reveals mortgage rates remain low

Every Thursday morning, Freddie Mac publishes the Prime Mortgage Market Survey, a weekly report based on conventional rates from the previous week. It’s an average and it’s also “old news” as a borrower cannot lock in last week’s rates… they can only lock in what’s available “now”.  Last week’s survey shows that rates are remaining at historically low levels.


With that said, I don’t anticipate that rates will remain at these low levels forever. It will be interesting to see how having a new Fed Chair, assuming President Trump retires Janet Yellen as he’s indicating, will impact the direction of mortgage interest rates.

What we do know is rates are low “now” and that many home owners are appreciating increased equity… so if you’ve been considering refinancing, you may want to get the ball rolling.

I’m happy to help you with your purchase or refi of homes located anywhere in Washington state, where I’m licensed. Click here for a no-hassle mortgage rate quote.

Mortgage rates at 2017 lows!

Freddie Mac’s weekly survey of mortgage rates reveals that last week interest rates remained at 2017 lows.

From Freddie Mac’s Prime Mortgage Market Survey:

Attributed to Sean Becketti, chief economist, Freddie Mac.
“Following a sharp decline last week, the 10-year Treasury yield rose 11 basis points this week. The 30-year mortgage rate, however, remained unchanged at 3.78 percent. If Treasury yields continue to rise, mortgage rates could see an increase in next week’s survey.”

Remember, this is “last week’s” information. You cannot lock in a mortgage rate from last week unless you are a time traveler. If you would like current mortgage rates based on your personal scenario for your home located anywhere in Washington state, please contact me!
