Rising Mortgage Rates - What You Should Know
After steadily falling over the winter, mortgage rates have started to rise in recent weeks. This is concerning to some potential homebuyers as the combination of higher mortgage rates and higher prices have made homes less affordable. So, if you’re planning to purchase a home this year, you too may be wondering if now’s the right time to buy or if you should hold off on your search until rates come back down.
“Mortgage rates increased across the board last week, pushed higher by market expectations that inflation will persist."
The most recent average 30-year fixed mortgage rate reported by Freddie Mac is 6.5%.
