The current national average for 30 year fixed mortgage rates is 6.89%. The 10 year treasury rate yield is around 3.5%. The 10 year treasury rate yield and the 30 year fixed mortgage have had a very tight correlation for several decades. While there may be some deviation for a few weeks or months, for the most part, as goes the 10 year treasury rate yield, so go mortgage rates.
The 10 year yield peaked around 4.1% in early March 2023. It has been trending lower since and is currently below both its 50 day and 200 day moving average. In fact, the 50 day crossed under the 200 day moving average just a few days ago. This makes us think we are going to see some stabilization around 3.5% which means the 30 year fixed mortgage should settle at 6.75% before tracking lower into the summer months. With this being the case, we predict June 2023 mortgage rates for the 30 year fixed will be 6.75%.
UPDATE: The 10 year treasury rate yield actually moved higher and June 2023 mortgage ares for the 30 year fixed were 7.5% to start the month.
