Today's Mortgage Rates
Recent Mortgage Rate Stability Could Change Tomorrow

Jun 13 2017, 3:20PM

Mortgage rates moved modestly higher today, for most lenders.  This had more 
to do with yesterday's market movement than today's.  Bond markets were 
weakening yesterday afternoon (which typically results in rates moving higher).  
But the weakness came too late in the day for most lenders to bother with 
reissuing rate sheets.  Instead, they waited for this morning.  With a bit of
weakness remaining intact, it was an easy call to raise loan costs.
