National data show interest rates on mortgages continued their upward trend. Contract mortgage interest rates increased from May to June—up 0.15 percent from May, according to an index of new mortgage contracts. According to the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), the National Average Contract Mortgage Rate for the Purchase of Previously Occupied Homes by Combined Lenders index was 3.55 percent for loans closed in late June. The index is calculated using FHFA’s Monthly Interest Rate Survey. The contract rate on the composite of all mortgage loans was 3.55 percent, up 15 basis points from 3.40 in May. Interest rates are typically locked in 30-45 days before a loan is closed. Consequently, June data reflect market rates from mid-to-late May. The effective interest rate was 3.67 percent, up 10 basis points from 3.57 percent in May. The effective interest rate accounts for the addition of initial fees and charges over the life of the mortgage. FHFA’s interest rate survey shows the average interest rate on conventional, 30-year, fixed-rate mortgages of $417,000 or less was 3.76 in June, an increase of 18 basis points. The average loan amount for all loans was $282,400 in June up $1,800 from $280,600 in May.
