Mortgage Rates for May 28, 2024

At the beginning of the year, experts expected multiple rate cuts in 2024, but that outlook has changed. Fixed mortgage rates now parallel the 10-year Treasury yield, influenced by the economy, inflation, and Federal Reserve decisions. After their meeting on May 1, the Fed decided not to cut rates, despite April CPI data showing only modestly easing inflation, still above the 2 percent target. “The market was enamored with a slightly lower CPI. We are in a ‘buy on any positive news no matter how modest’ state,” says Dick Lepre of RealFinity. Home buying decisions are often based on personal needs rather than market shifts, so it might be wise to accept higher rates now and refinance later, starting to build equity rather than waiting for potentially more favorable conditions.
