Mortgage Rates Move Higher This Week

Mortgage rates moved higher this week, following 10 year bond yields higher as a result of a strong July employment report. Last Friday, July's Nonfarm Payroll numbers showed 255,000 jobs were created in July, 75,000 more jobs than were expected. 

10 year bond yields shot back above 1.50 percent on the strong report and went as high as 1.60 percent. Last Friday, 30 year conforming mortgage rates were averaging 3.38 percent. Today 30 year conforming rates are higher, averaging 3.56 percent.

Even with the 18 basis point increase, average 30 rates are not much higher than the all-time low of 3.31 percent set late in 2012. Right now, there are a few lenders on our mortgage rates list quoting 30 year refinance rates below the all-time low of 3.31 percent.
