Mortgage Rates 8-14-13

By Steven Roberts Updated on 8/14/2013

Are mortgage rates going up tomorrow?  Unfortunately, it seems tomorrow’s rate will increase as it has today. The fluctuation is due to the reaction to yesterday’s Retail Sales Report. The Employment Report released August 2nd had stabilized lower market rates until today’s peak. Expect an increase in rates tomorrow unless action is taken by the Federal government regarding tapering, which may take place in upcoming months. Fortunately, the FHA 30-year FRM and ARM loan rates were not affected.
