MBA forecasts mortgage rates to rise to 3.4% by the end of the year – CNBC

Mortgage rates are still at historically-low levels despite an increase in the last few weeks making a 30-year mortgage still affordable and even a 15-year mortgage even more affordable. Because of this, refinance applications this week are still 50% higher than the same week last year. In terms of inventory, there’s still a lack of existing homes for sale. New constructions are being built at a higher rate and this is poised to tackle this issue but despite that, there’s still a tight supply of homes to meet the buyer demand.
