Mortgage Rates rise sharply for Sunnyvale, CA homes

In last 3 weeks, 30 year fixed mortgage rates have gone up 34 basis points for Sunnyvale, CA homes.

In the latest results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey® Freddie Mac reported 30-year fixed-rate mortgageaveraged 5.05 percent with an average 0.7 point for the week ending December 24, 2009. The 15-year Fixed Rate this week averaged 4.45 percent with an average 0.6 point. The 5-year adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) averaged 4.40 percent this week.

These rates are for conforming loan amount $417,000 and lower. Higher loan amounts come with higher interest rates.

The rates through 2009 have been artificially kept lower by Fed by buying Mortgage Backed Securities (MBS). Fed is planning to stop buying MBS in March 2010 and if they actually decide to do so, mortgage rates could go up 25 bps to 50 bps almost overnight. No surprise that the average rates are projected to go beyond 6% by the end of the year.
