Mortgage Interest Rates Increased for the Second Straight Week

Interest rates remained at near record lows in January, but have increased for the second straight week, following a better-than-expected January employment report.

According to the Mortgage Bankers Association, the average interest rate for 30-year fixed-rate mortgages with conforming loan balances increased to 3.93 percent from the average of 3.625 percent two weeks ago.

Over the past few years interest rates have bounced back and forth, but have remained near historic lows . . . and a mortgage with an interest rate of under 4% is a real bargain.
