Mortgage rates and bond yields have surged higher over the past three months. The increase in rates and yields accelerated since Donald Trump won the Presidential Election. The month before the election, average 30 year conforming mortgage rates were at 3.54 percent. 30 year mortgage rates today are above 4.00 percent, averaging 4.18 percent.

During the same time, 10 year U.S. Treasury yields rose from around 1.60 percent to today’s yield of 2.60 percent, a 100 basis point increase. We expect even higher rates and yields in 2017 because the Federal Open Market Committee is expected to increase rates.

The FOMC anticipates increasing the fed funds rate by 0.75 percent in 2017 and may possibly increase the rate more if needed. This will put upward pressure on Treasury yields, which in turn will put upward pressure on mortgage rates. 10 year Treasury yields could hit 3.50 percent and average 30 year mortgage rates might hit 5.00 percent by the end of 2017.

15 year mortgage rates are also moved sharply higher over the past three months. In late September of this year, average 15 year mortgage rates were around 2.75 percent. 15 year mortgage rates today are much higher, averaging 3.33 percent, an increase of 58 basis points. 15 year mortgage rates will likely hit 4.00 percent by the end of 2017.

On a percentage basis, the current increase for both 30 year rates and 15 year rates are even higher. Average 30 year mortgage rates increased by 18 percent and average 15 year mortgage rates increased by 21 percent in 3 months. You can see an archive of average mortgage rates for 2016 at Freddie Mac Mortgage Rate Archive.

Unfortunately, for homeowners financing their purchase, higher mortgage rates are here and will continue to move higher. If you’re a potential homebuyer, now is time to lock in a mortgage rate before rates increase. The higher the mortgage rates, the higher your monthly mortgage payment will be and the less home you can afford.

The rates mentioned above are average rates but you can still find lenders quoting mortgage rates below the average. If you’re comparing mortgage rates, you can see a list of lenders listed in your state by searching our rate lists at Mortgage Rates.

Mortgage rates moved considerably higher this week, after hovering just above record lows the past couple of weeks. Average 30 year conforming mortgage rates increased 12 basis points this week from 3.36 percent to 3.48 percent. Despite the recent increase, 30 year rates are only 17 basis points higher than the record low set in the 4th quarter of 2012.

The future trend for mortgage rates will be higher in the coming months and years. The first catalyst for higher rates will be the Federal Open Market Committee’s December meeting. The FOMC is predicted to increase the fed funds in December and the increase is widely expected to be 25 basis points.

The fed funds rate increase will likely only have a slight impact on mortgage rates. Any increases in mortgage rates will happen before the meeting because markets will drive 10 year rates higher in anticipation of a rate increase. Regardless, the future trend for higher mortgage rates will start in December.

Fixed mortgage rates and long term bond yields trend higher together because most lenders set fixed mortgage rates based on long term U.S. Treasury yields.

If you haven’t heard the news, the Federal Open Market Committee declined to raise the fed funds rate list week. This is good news for those looking to buy a home or refinance a mortgage, as current mortgage rates will stay near record lows for now.

Mortgage rates are not directly tied to the federal funds rate but indirectly tied. When the federal funds rate is increased, bond yields usually increase. Lenders tie mortgage rates to 10 year bond yields, as 10 year bond yields rise, lenders adjust mortgage rates higher.

30 year fixed conforming mortgage rates are currently at 3.51 percent, up from last week’s average mortgage rate of 3.46 percent. 30 year rate moved higher last week but are only about 25 basis points above all-time record lows set a few years ago.

A decade ago, 30 year mortgage rates were in the 6 to 7 percent range. Back in the early 1980’s the all-time record high for 30 year mortgage rates was just above 17 percent.

Average 30 year rates are at 3.51 percent today but there are lenders quoting 30 year rates well below the average. The best 30 year refinance rates on our rate list right now are at 3.00 percent with points. The best rates without points are still below the average at 3.25 percent.

Mortgage points allow the borrower to get a lower mortgage rate by paying money up front. Each mortgage point is equal to 1 percent of the loan amount.
