Mortgage rates moved slightly higher this week but will decline later this week because of lower bond yields. Despite the increase in rates, average mortgage rates are still near all-time record lows. Near record low mortgage rates, combined with 5 million jobs created over the past two years, and an unemployment rate nearing 5 percent will help the housing market in 2015.

30 year conventional mortgage rates today are averaging 3.90 percent, up slightly from last week's average 30 year rate of 3.88 percent. Average 30 year rates are only about 50 basis points from the all-time record lows set in May 2013.
