Average mortgage rates start near the lows of 2014 but will increase throughout 2015. 30 year mortgage rates today remain under 4.00 percent at 3.98 percent. Mortgage rates continue to remain low because 10 year bond yields also remain low, defying expectations of an increase in rates.

10 year bond yields closed at 2.12 percent on Friday, almost 100 basis points lower than the forecast for the beginning of 2015. Mortgage rates and 10 year bond yields are expected to increase about 1.00 percent by the end of this year. 10 year bond yields will approach 3.00 percent, 30 year mortgage rates will head towards 5.00 percent and 15 year rates will move towards 4.00 percent.
