Buyers Beware: Mortgage Rates Continue to Inch Up

Mortgage interest rates hit their highest levels in six weeks, according to Freddie Mac.  But don't panic yet, the average for 30-year fixed mortgages is still well under 4%, at 3.85%.  It has long been expected that rates would increase but we have seen these slight jumps before in the past few years.  A year ago, the average rate was 3.42%.
