Mortgage Rate Expectations For February in Kansas City

 

According to data from Freddie Mac released on February 10th, the 30 year fixed-rate mortgage stood at 3.69% (up from below 3% in November 2021), and increased 0.15% since last month. Higher-than-expected inflation rates 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 in March 2022 either 0.25% or 0.50%.
