Average rates increased to 4.20 percent this week but will move lower again this coming week thanks to a less than stellar August jobs report. Only 142,000 jobs were created last month, almost 100,000 jobs less than economists forecasted.
As a result of the disappointing news on jobs, U.S. Treasury yields are heading lower today, which will bring down mortgage rates in the coming days. 10 year U.S. Treasury yields hit a low of 2.38 percent today, just above the 2014 low of 2.30 percent. In the coming weeks, 10 year yields will break through the lows for this year and probably settle around 2.25 percent.
10 year bond yields at 2.25 percent will send average 30 year mortgage rates down to the 4.00 percent range, we might even see average rates fall below 4.00 percent. The last time average 30 year rates were below 4.00 percent was in June 2013. Although average 30 year rates are above 4.00 percent you can easily find lenders quoting rates below 4.00 percent.

Most were expecting higher mortgage rates throughout 2014 but just the opposite is happening. Early in the year, mortgage analysts were predicting conventional 30 year mortgage rates would hit 5.00 percent by the end of 2014. Average 30 year rates today are at 4.30 percent, just above the low of 4.13 percent this year.
Average rates on 30 year loans will move lower in the coming days because yields on 10 year bonds are tanking. Lenders set loan rates based on U.S. Treasury yields and 10 year bond yields are down 7 basis points today to 2.33 percent, the lowest point for the 10 year yield this year. This sharp decline will drive lenders to decrease mortgage rates in the coming days, which will drive the average mortgage rate lower, in all likelihood to a new low for 2014.
Yields are moving lower as a response to several factors. Economies across the globe remain sluggish and as a result, central banks are forcing interest rates lower to stimulate their economies. Bond yields declined to record lows across the European Union. German 10 year bond yields briefly fell below 1.00 percent for the first time ever.
Geopolitical tensions have been increasing in several different parts of the world and as a result investors are reducing their appetite for risk, instead investing in the safe haven of bonds in the Eurozone and in the United States. Investor demand for bonds has driven bond prices higher and bond yields lower. We could see 10 year U.S. bond yields fall to 2.00 percent in the months ahead. A 2.0o percent 10 year yield would send average 30 year mortgage rates towards 3.75 percent.
Average rates are still above 4.00 percent but there are many lenders quoting 30 year refinance rates below 4.00 percent. We have over 10 lenders quoting 30 year rates below 4.00 percent on our rate tables with points and without points.
