Current mortgage rates on 30 year jumbo loans are averaging 4.42 percent, a slight decline from an average rate of 4.43 percent last week. 15 year jumbo mortgage rates bucked the downtrend and are currently averaging 4.16 percent, up from an average jumbo rate of 4.12 percent. 5 year jumbo adjustable mortgage rates are averaging 3.80 percent, down from last week's average of 3.85 percent.

Where mortgage rates are headed in 2019 is anyone's guess at this point. The government shutdown, already the longest ever, is causing the economy to slow. Long term bond yields are also falling which will drive mortgage rates lower from current levels.
