The 30-year Fixed-Rate Mortgage Increased by a Quarter of a Percent this Week
September 22, 2022
The housing market continues to face headwinds as mortgage rates increase again this week, following the 10-year Treasury yield’s jump to its highest level since 2011. Impacted by higher rates, house prices are softening, and home sales have decreased. However, the number of homes for sale remains well below normal levels.
Average commitment rates should be reported along with average fees and points to reflect the total upfront cost of obtaining the mortgage. Visit the following link for the Definitions. Borrowers may still pay closing costs which are not included in the survey.
Today’s Mortgage Rates & Trends
Mortgage rates jumped for a third consecutive day Tuesday, with the 30-year average adding more than a quarter of a point since Thursday to surpass 6.65%, and notching yet another new 14-year high.
|National Averages of Lenders’ Best Rates|
|FHA 30-Year Fixed||6.67%||6.75%|
|Jumbo 30-Year Fixed||5.64%||5.65%|
National averages of the lowest rates offered by more than 200 of the country’s top lenders, with a loan-to-value ratio (LTV) of 80%, an applicant with a FICO credit score of 700–760, and no mortgage points.
Today’s National Mortgage Rate Averages
Rates on 30-year mortgages extended their pattern of the last three days, adding yet another nine basis points Tuesday to raise the already elevated flagship average to 6.66%. It has now moved up almost half a percentage point over the past eight days, and is once again sitting at its most expensive level since October 2008.
Fifteen-year rates climbed, even more, Tuesday, tacking on 11 basis points. Now at 5.92%, the 15-year average has again risen to a new 14-year high as well.
Jumbo 30-year rates meanwhile held steady for a second day Tuesday, but that was after spiking an eighth of a percentage point Friday. The current average of 5.64% is the highest level seen since February 2011.
Expert mortgage rate predictions for October
Selma Hepp, deputy chief economist at Corelogic
Prediction: Rates will fall
“The recent spike in mortgage rates was another reaction to continually strong inflation readings and the expected “large” 75 basis point hike at the September meeting. Nevertheless, after the meeting and into October, we are likely to see mortgage rates return to the 5.5% average as lenders contend with dwindling home buyer demand.”
Odeta Kushi, deputy chief economist at First American
Prediction: Rates will moderate
“Mortgage rates will likely remain elevated in October but fluctuate on a week-to-week basis. Mortgage rates have steadily increased in recent weeks as financial markets speculated whether or not the Federal Reserve would continue with its aggressive policy to cool inflation.
The August Core Consumer Price Index (CPI) (excluding food and energy) strengthened the case for a more hawkish Fed, as core CPI came in double the expected pace at 0.6%. In response, U.S. Treasury yields increased and mortgage rates were alongside them. The surprise to the upside all but guarantees continued aggressive action from the Fed, likely putting more upward pressure on mortgage rates, but at a slower pace, as the Fed’s future tightening is already baked into mortgage rates.”
Taylor Marr, Deputy Chief Economist at Redfin
Prediction: Rates will moderate
“Interest rate movement is very uncertain at this time. Rates will likely have some drops and increases again, depending on the economic data. I could anticipate that a bad data release following a more aggressive path of rates from the Fed would result in renewed recession fears, pulling rates down.”
