Mortgage rates increase for Tuesday

30-year fixed mortgages

The average 30-year fixed-mortgage rate is 4.16 percent, an increase of 5 basis points over the last seven days. A month ago, the average rate on a 30-year fixed mortgage was lower, at 3.85 percent.

At the current average rate, you’ll pay principal and interest of $486.69 for every $100,000 you borrow. That’s an additional $2.91 per $100,000 compared to last week.

You can use Bankrate’s mortgage calculator to figure out your monthly payments and see how much you’ll save by adding extra payments. It will also help you calculate how much interest you’ll pay over the life of the loan.

15-year fixed mortgages

The average 15-year fixed-mortgage rate is 3.50 percent, up 5 basis points since the same time last week.

Monthly payments on a 15-year fixed mortgage at that rate will cost around $715 per $100,000 borrowed. That may squeeze your monthly budget than a 30-year mortgage would, but it comes with some big advantages: You’ll save thousands of dollars over the life of the loan in total interest paid and build equity much faster.

The estimation accounts for the client's entire balance sheet, accounting for expenses beyond a mortgage like closing costs, property taxes, maintenance and insurance.

The firm will automatically show investors how saving for a home will impact progress towards their other financial goals, and clients can use sliding scales to see how waiting to own a home affects savings.
