Mortgage Rates Inch Down, Lowest 30 Year Mortgage Rates at 4.00 Percent

Mortgage rates moved lower this week as the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) continues to taper. The FOMC is now only buying $55 billion a month in bonds and mortgage backed securities, down from December's amount of $85 billion. Surprisingly, mortgage rates and long term bond rates have fallen since December but rates will eventually move higher in 2014.

Mortgage rates today on 30 year conforming mortgage loans are averaging 4.34 percent, a decline from yesterday's average 30 year mortgage rate of 4.36 percent. 30 year mortgage interest rates back in December 2013 were above 4.50 percent, averaging 4.63 percent. Average rates were poised to move above 4.75 percent but now it looks like rates won't move that high until the summer.
