After years of holding firm at historically low levels, mortgage interest rates have started 2018 off with a bang.

US Weekly average as of 01 March 2018:
30-year: 4.43% (.5 points)
15-year: 3.9% (.5 points)
5/1 ARM: 3.62% (.4 points)

The economy has been surging, and, even after recent “corrections” to the major indices (DOW, S&P, and NASDAQ), the fixed rate is beginning to reflect a booming economy of record breaking stock prices and exceptionally low unemployment.
