Average mortgage rates were basically unchanged last week, keeping rates near historic lows, despite the Fed signaling it would likely begin reducing the volume of bonds purchased monthly sometime before the end of the year.

Average mortgage rates this week are unlikely to see much movement, as the summer effectively comes to a close for Labor Day weekend. It is unlikely we see rates move much lower from here in the coming weeks, but it is always a good idea to discuss your unique situation with your mortgage professional who can give you the best individual guidance on interest rates.

🗓️ 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁'𝘀 𝗮𝗳𝗳𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗲𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝘄𝗲𝗲𝗸:
- Economic data: Nothing at the beginning of the week to worry about, but Friday's jobs data has the potential to cause some movement ahead of the holiday weekend. If locking your loan's rate this week, it may be best to consider doing so before Friday.
- Fed stimulus: The Fed continues to buy Treasuries and mortgage bonds, helping keep mortgage rates low, although it will begin tapering purchases sometime before the end of the year which could contribute to rates creeping higher.
- Holiday weekend: Markets and lenders will be closed Monday.
