From Matthew Graham at Mortgage News Daily: Mortgage Rates Hit 4.0% For First Time Since May 2019

In case it wasn’t already clear based on the headline, the average is currently up to 4.02%. Keep in mind that is an average among top tier scenarios. It means that some lenders are quoting 3.625% and others are up to 4.375%. Adding any complexity to the scenario would mean a different rate. Also keep in mind that lenders are MUCH more widely stratified than normal, which is often the case when we’ve seen as much volatility as we have so far in 2022. [30 year fixed 4.02%]
