Mortgage rates for 30-year and 15-year fixed loans, as well as 5/1 ARMs, all rose today, according to a NerdWallet survey of mortgage interest rates published by national lenders Wednesday morning.
Mortgage rates bounced off of yesterday’s lows, with adjustable-rate mortgages making the biggest move higher.
The futures market, where institutional investors hedge the prices of everything from currencies to corn, is all but ensuring a short-term rate hike by the Federal Reserve one week from today.
How would a Fed interest rate bump affect mortgage rates?
“Even with the Fed approving an interest rate hike, this will not impact consumers looking to purchase a home or refinance,” Mat Ishbia, CEO of United Wholesale Mortgage, said in a statement. “This rate hike has been anticipated and has been priced into the market already.”
