Long Beach Island Mortgage Update

Rates on home loans rose again in the past week which was largely expected. For the week ending February 15, Freddie Mac announced that 30-year fixed rates increased to 4.38% from 4.32% the week before. Fixed rate  mortgages continue to remain a very popular lending option in the LBI real estate market.  The average for 15-year loans rose to 3.84% and the average for five-year adjustables climbed to 3.63%. A year ago, 30-year fixed rates averaged 4.15%, higher than today’s level. Attributed to Len Kiefer, Deputy Chief Economist, Freddie Mac — “Wednesday’s Consumer Price Index report showed higher-than-expected inflation; headline consumer price inflation was 2.1 percent year-over-year in January — two tenths of a percentage point higher than the consensus forecast. Inflation measures were broad-based, cementing expectations that the Federal Reserve will go forward with monetary tightening later this year. Following this news, the 10-year Treasury reached its highest level since January 2014, climbing above 2.90 percent. Rates on home loans have also surged. After jumping 10 basis points last week, 30-year fixed-rates rose 6 basis points to 4.38 percent, its highest level since April 2014.” Note: Rates indicated do not include fees and points and are provided for evidence of trends only.
