30 year mortgage rates today are averaging 4.12 percent, down 15 basis points from last week’s average rate of 4.27 percent. Rates are expected to increase this week because 10 year U.S. Treasury yields moved sharply higher. 20 year Treasury yields increased 25 basis points since last Wednesday on hopes of a Greek bailout deal. A deal was reached this morning and as a result, 10 year bond yields are up another 5 basis points to 2.45 percent.

Lenders set mortgage rates based on 10 year bond yields so when yields move higher, mortgage rates also move higher. By the end of this week, average 30 year mortgage rates will be back above 4.25 percent. Historically speaking, 30 year rates around 4.00 percent are still incredibly low.

Now that the Greek issue has been resolved, markets will be focused on when the Federal Open Market Committee increases the fed funds rate. Mortgage rates are not directly tied to the fed funds rate but Treasury yields are. When the FOMC increases the fed funds rate, Treasury yields will increase and then mortgage rates will increase.

The general consensus was for the FOMC to increase the fed funds rate during their September meeting. Recent economic data released might force the FOMC to wait until their October or December meeting to increase the rate. If this scenario plays out, we may see 30 year mortgage rates around 4.00 percent for the rest of 2015.

Average Mortgage Rates July 13 2015While the average for 30 year rates is above 4.00 percent, there are many lenders still quoting 30 year rates below 4.00 percent. Right now on our mortgage rate list for California, we have Pentagon Federal Credit Union quoting 30 year refinance rates at 3.75 percent with 1 point. We also have two other lenders quoting 30 year refi rates below 4.00 percent.

Current mortgage rates on 15 year conforming loans are averaging 3.13 percent, down from the prior week’s average rate of 3.22 percent. If the FOMC puts off a September rate increase, average 15 year rates will probably remain around 3.00 percent for the rest of 2015. The best 15 year refinance rates available on our rate list for Florida are just under 3.00 percent.

30 year jumbo mortgage rates are averaging 4.39 percent, down slightly from last week’s average 30 year jumbo rate of 4.42 percent. Jumbo rates are also affected by bond yields, so we expect 30 year jumbo rates to remain near current levels for the rest of 2015. The best 30 year jumbo refinance rates available on our rate list for Connecticut are at 3.75 percent with no points.

Today’s mortgage rates on 15 year jumbo loans are averaging 3.85 percent, down 1 basis point from the previous week’s average 15 year jumbo rate. 15 year jumbo rates will also stay under 4.00 percent for the rest of this year if the FOMC waits on a rate increase. The lowest 15 year jumbo rates on our rate list are currently at 2.99 percent.

Current mortgage rates are at the highest level this year because of higher U.S. Treasury yields. Average 30 year mortgage rates this week are at 4.27 percent, up from the prior week’s average rate of 4.16 percent. The last time 30 year rates were this high was back in October 2014.

Strong economic data released the past several weeks has sent bond yields higher. 10 year yields closed at 2.44 percent yesterday, up 19 basis points from the June low of 2.25 percent. The low point for average 30 year mortgage rates in June as 3.92 percent. Lenders tie mortgage rates to 10 year bond yields, so when yields move higher, lenders increase mortgage rates.

Higher mortgage rates has already crimped loan demand, the Mortgage Bankers Association reported mortgage applications dropped 4.7 percent for the week ending June 26. Applications to refinance loans, fell 5 percent week-to-week to the lowest level since December of last year.

Along with everyone else, we have been forecasting higher mortgage rates for most of 2015. If you’re thinking about buying a home or refinancing a mortgage the sooner you do so the lower rate you will get on your loan. By the end of 2015, average 30 year mortgage rates are forecast to hit 5.00 percent.

Average mortgage rates declined this week, after three consecutive weeks of increases. 30 year conforming mortgage rates are currently averaging 3.90 percent, down from last week’s average 30 year rate of 3.94 percent. Rates moved higher the prior three weeks but the increases have been small. 30 year rates were averaging 3.85 percent in early May, only 9 basis points lower from the current level.

Despite near record low mortgage rates, the housing market hasn’t fully recovered. Existing-home sales slowed last month in all major regions of the country, except the Midwest. The National Association of Realtors reported existing home sales increased 3.3 percent to seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.04 million in April.

The sole reason for the slowdown is the low number of available homes for sale. Buyers are coming back into the market, because of a stronger economy and a lower unemployment rate, but the low number of homes for sale is forcing prices higher.

Lawrence Yun, NAR’s chief economist, said:

Housing inventory declined from last year and supply in many markets is very tight, which in turn is leading to bidding wars, faster price growth and properties selling at a quicker pace,” says Yun. “To put it in perspective, roughly 40 percent of properties sold last month went at or above asking price, the highest since NAR began tracking this monthly data in December 2012.

Home prices are moving higher and mortgage rates will eventually also move higher, making homes less affordable. If you’re thinking about buying a home, now is probably one of the best times to buy for several years to come. If you already own a home and are thinking about refinancing your mortgage, you should do so sooner than later, if refinancing makes financial sense for you.

Be sure to shop around to find the best rate available. Just like you would shop around for the lowest price on any major purchases.

  • Mortgage rates today on 15 year conforming loans are averaging 3.07 percent, a decline from the previous week’s average 15 year rate of 3.12 percent.
  • 30 year jumbo mortgage rates are averaging 4.24 percent, down from last week’s average 30 year jumbo rate of 4.28 percent.
  • Today’s mortgage rates on 15 year jumbo loans are averaging 3.82 percent, down slightly from last week’s average rate of 3.83 percent.

Mortgage rates held steady this week but will increase in the coming days because of higher bond yields.

By the end of this week 30 year mortgage rates will hit 4.00 percent, a level not seen for several months.

10 year U.S. bonds increased 12 basis points yesterday to 2.27 percent. Yields increased to the highest level in more than 5 months because of looming new bond sales by the U.S. government. Another factor sending yields higher in the U.S are higher German bond yields.

Mortgage Rates May 12 2015For the past year, U.S. bond yields were held down by global demand for U.S. bonds. Investors got a better return in 10 year U.S. bonds yielding around 2.00 percent. 10 year German bond yields were almost negative a month ago but have since risen to 0.70 percent.

Now that German bond yields are increasing sharply, U.S. bond yields are also moving higher. Mortgage lenders set mortgage rates based on 10 year U.S. bond rates. When bond rates increase, mortgage rates also move higher.

Mortgage rates remain low this week, continuing to defy the experts who called for higher rates in 2015. Interest rates were supposed to increase this year because of stronger economic growth in the United States. Growth, for the most part, has been strong in 2015, but bond yields have actually declined.

Current 10 year U.S. bond yields are yielding 1.88 percent, down from the December 31, 2014, high of 2.17 percent. U.S. bond yields moving lower are the result of yields in German and Japan crashing. The European Union recently released quantitative easing to foster growth which has forced already low German yields even lower.

German bonds that mature in less then 10 years have a negative yield. You actually have to pay Germany a yield to buy their short term bonds. 10 year German bonds are only yielding 0.09 percent, much less than U.S. 10 year yields at 1.88 percent. 10 year Japanese bonds are also much than U.S. yields at 0.39 percent.

Investors around the world are buying U.S. bonds to get a better yield. As a result of the demand, U.S. bond prices are moving higher and bond yields are moving lower. Most lenders set mortgage rates to 10 year bond yields, when yields decline, mortgage rates also move lower.

Instead of seeing 30 year conforming mortgage rates hit 5.00 percent this year as forecast, we might see 30 year rates stay under 4.00 percent. Average 30 year conforming mortgage rates today are at 3.76 percent, a slight uptick from last week’s average rate of 3.74 percent.

Mortgage Rates Fall Because of Global Bond Yields CrashingAverage 30 year rates are at 3.76 percent but there are many lenders quoting rates below the average. Currently on our mortgage rate list for California, we have one lender quoting 30 year refinance rates at 3.50 percent with 1 mortgage point. When you pay points on a loan you can get a lower rate. You might be able to get an even lower rate by paying more than 1 mortgage point.

Current mortgage rates on 15 year conventional loans are averaging 2.96 percent. Up slightly from last week’s average 15 year rate of 2.94 percent. The best 15 year refinance rates on our rate list for CA is lower at 2.875 percent with 1 mortgage point.

Today’s mortgage rates on 30 year jumbo loans are averaging 3.97 percent, up from the prior week’s average 30 year jumbo rate of 3.94 percent. The best 30 jumbo refinance rates available on our rate list for Washington State are much lower at 3.375 percent with 1 point.

15 year jumbo mortgage rates today are averaging 3.81 percent, up from the previous week’s average rate of 3.52 percent. The lowest 15 year jumbo refi rates available on our rate list for Colorado are almost 1.00 percent lower at 2.875 percent with 1 point.
