Today’s Mortgage and Refinance Rates: June 09, 2022

Interest Rates

Even though mortgage rates are stable in the last couple of weeks, they still are 2% higher than they were last year. The combination of high rates and high prices gives little hope to homebuyers and it is still unknown what will change in the near future. The current rising inflation doesn’t favor anyone. The Federal Reserve’s actions to tame this inflation through tighter monetary policy also contribute to higher interest rates. So, how high would they go? Will we adjust to the new rates and consider them normal?

“Aggressive inflation will force the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates multiple rounds this year and actively pursue quantitative tightening,” says Lawrence Yun, chief economist and senior vice president of research at the National Association of Realtors (NAR). “That is why mortgage rates recently have shot up so high. Higher mortgage rates will inevitably pull home sales down in the coming months and slow home price appreciation.”

The current average 30-year fixed mortgage rate climbed 10 basis points from 5.07% to 5.17% on Thursday, Zillow announced. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on June 9, 2022, is up 20 basis points from the previous week’s average rate of 4.97%. Additionally, the current national average 15-year fixed mortgage rate increased 10 basis points from 4.19% to 4.29%. The current national average 5-year ARM rate is down 3 basis points from 4.70% to 4.67%.

“Rates have continued to fluctuate over the past few weeks as volatility persists,” says Robert Heck, vice president of mortgage at Morty. “Now that rates have had a chance to remain elevated, we are beginning to see the impact on demand and affordability, as more buyers find themselves priced out of the market.”

The rate, points, and APR may be affected by a number of factors, including the property location, loan amount, loan type, occupancy type, property type, loan-to-value ratio, and your credit score. Your actual rate and points may be higher or lower than those quoted, depending on information concerning these criteria that may only be addressed or established after you apply.

To choose how much interest you’ll pay and if your rate may vary later, you can pick between a fixed-rate mortgage and an adjustable-rate mortgage. A fixed-rate mortgage has an interest rate that stays the same throughout the duration of the loan. If you had a 30-year mortgage, the rate you pay today will be the same as it will be in 30 years. An adjustable-rate mortgage, or ARM, has rates and monthly payments that remain constant for a fixed length of time before changing on a regular basis. A 5/1 ARM (adjustable-rate mortgage), for example, has a fixed rate for the first five years and then changes every year after that. There is also a hybrid rate available today. A hybrid adjustable-rate mortgage, or hybrid ARM (sometimes known as a “fixed-period ARM”), combines fixed-rate and adjustable-rate mortgage characteristics. An initial fixed-rate period will be followed by an adjustable-rate period in this form of a mortgage.
