Mortgage Rates Rise...Again

30-year mortgage rates are at their highest levels since July 2015.

This week, Freddie Mac's weekly survey of more than 100 mortgage lenders shows rates on a record run higher. Conventional 30-year fixed rate mortgages increased another 5 basis points (0.05%) from last week's reading. Rates rose to 4.08% nationwide, on average.

In all, rates are up 51 basis points (0.51%) in three weeks.

The after-effects of the U.S. presidential election sent rates skyward, as the market absorbed proposed policies of the incoming administration.
