Mortgage rates, which are low historically speaking, are expected to decline even more in the coming weeks. Mortgage rates will decline in the near future due to of lower long term bond yields. 10 year bond yields fell back below 2.00 percent this week and are down to 1.81 percent today. At the beginning of 2016, 10 year yields were around 2.25 percent.

During the same time, average 30 year mortgage rates have fallen from a peak of 3.81 percent to 3.71 percent today. The larger decline in 10 year bond yields will force average 30 year mortgage rates down to around 3.50 percent. You can already find lenders quoting 30 year rates around 3.50 percent with points.
