Mortgage Rates Return to 2015 Highs
Risk is flooding back into the markets, most notably in the form of the changes in the European bond markets. After a year and a half of record lows, it would seem that things have finally turned around. Though it is still too early to know whether or not this is to be a major, long-term reversal, investors are playing it safe by dumping their bonds.
Since the European markets are connected fairly closely with US markets, this selling trend is having an effect on American mortgage rates. This is providing for a high-risk environment, and the average borrower would do well to lock in to current rates before they can jump any higher.
