According to data from Freddie Mac released on March 3rd, the 30 years fixed-rate mortgage stood at 3.76% (up from below 3% in November 2021) and increased 0.21% since last month. Higher-than-expected inflation rates have caused the Fed to consider tightening the money supply sooner than expected. To control inflation, the fed likely increase interest rates in March 2022 either 0.25% or 0.50%.
