Mortgage rates are higher this week as the economy gains steam and the unemployment rate falls. Record low mortgage rates we saw earlier this year are a thing of the past. We probably won't see rates as low again in our lifetime. Mortgage rates today on 30 year conforming loans are averaging 4.48 percent, an increase from last week's average 30 year mortgage rate of 4.38 percent.

Late last week, two big economic numbers were released that were stronger than expected which sent 10 year bond rates higher. Lenders tie mortgage rates to 10 year bond rates and higher bond rates brings higher mortgage rates. 10 year bond rates increased from 2.77 percent last Wednesday to 2.88 percent this morning. This increase will send average mortgage rates higher this week.

Last Thursday the U.S. Department of  Commerce released the second estimate of 3rd quarter Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Real GDP increased at an annual rate of 3.6 percent in the 3rd quarter of 2013, higher than the expected number of 2.8 percent.

Last Friday the Labor Department released November's job report, which showed 203,000 jobs were created. That number is higher than analysts were expecting. The unemployment rate fell to the lowest point in over 5 years - from 7.3 percent down to 7.00 percent. The rate was expected to be affected by the government shutdown as federal workers returned to work, but the rate was only expected to fall to 7.2 percent. The larger decline points to a stronger economy having created more jobs.
