Mortgage Rate Expectations For January in Kansas City

 

According to data from Freddie Mac released on January 13th, the 30 years fixed-rate mortgage stood at 3.45% (up from below 3% in November 2021), and increased 0.25% since last week. This is driven by higher-than-expected inflation rates which have caused the Fed to consider tightening the money supply sooner than expected. In order to control inflation, the fed will end its bond-buying operations and likely increase interest rates this year.
