Mortgage Rates Increase from 2014 Lows: 30 Year Mortgage Rates Today at 4.24%

Follow by Email
Mortgage interest rates hit 2014 lows last week and have moved slightly higher this week. A week ago, average 30 year mortgage rates hit a low of 4.07 percent. Rates increased because long term bond yields moved higher. 10 year bond yields rose 15 basis points the past 5 trading days, driving average 30 year mortgage rates up to 4.24 percent.

At the start of 2014 mortgage analysts predicted average 30 year mortgage rates would move just above 5.00 percent. The high point this year for 30 year rates was 4.53 percent during the first week of January. We don't anticipate average 30 year rates moving much higher or lower from current levels and rates certainty won't move towards 5.00 percent.

For the remainder of 2014 average 30 year rates will be range bound between 4.25 percent and 4.65 percent. There is more of a chance rates will fall towards 4.00 percent instead of moving up near 5.00 percent. Although rates have remained above 4.00 percent this entire year lenders have quoted rates below 4.00 percent all year long.
