If you missed the news last week mortgage rates hit new lows for 2014. The average 30 year conforming mortgage rate hit a low in 2014 of 4.06 percent. 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.
