current mortgage rates are up today as bond yields increase 3 basis points to 1.63 percent as the markets await the Greek vote this weekend which will move rates in either direction depending on the outcome of the vote. A vote for the Greek party that wants to renege on the bailout deal will send bond yields tumbling next week which will send mortgage rates down to new all-time lows.
