Mortgage rates rise on expectation of Fed’s possible cut in short-term interest rates

Mortgage rates rose this week spurred largely by rising optimism about the Federal Reserve’s possible move at the end of the month to cut short-term interest rates.

According to the latest data released Thursday by Freddie Mac, the 30-year fixed-rate average jumped to 3.81 percent with an average 0.6 point. (Points are fees paid to a lender equal to 1 percent of the loan amount and are in addition to the interest rate.) It was 3.75 percent a week ago and 4.52 percent a year ago.

The 15-year fixed-rate average rose to 3.23 percent with an average 0.5 point. It was 3.22 percent a week ago and 4.0 percent a year ago. The five-year adjustable rate average climbed to 3.48 percent with an average 0.4 point. It was 3.46 percent a week ago and 3.87 percent a year ago.

“This is a very small change in mortgage rates this week, which is the equivalent of an additional $10 per month on a $300,000 loan,” Lawrence Yun, chief economist of the National Association of Realtors, said in an interview.
