Mortgage Rates Start to Rise in U.S.

Mortgage Rates Start to Rise in U.S.


According to Freddie Mac's latest Primary Mortgage Market Survey, U.S. mortgage rates rose modestly this 2nd week of April 2019, with the 30-year fixed-rate averaging 4.12 percent.

Sam Khater, Freddie Mac's chief economist, says, "Rates moved up slightly this week while mortgage applications decreased following last week's jump in rates - indicating borrower sensitivity to changing mortgage rates. Despite the recent rise, we expect mortgage rates to remain low, in line with the low 10-year treasury yields, boosting homebuyer demand in the next few months."
