Let's take a look at today's mortgage rates at four mortgage lenders and see where they are as the rates are slowly increasing already second week in a row.

These rates and quotes are taken from eRate.com. This is what I saw on its website this morning.

I asked a fellow mortgage specialist Steve Khan to provide his option about where he thinks the current mortgage rates will be by the end of the year and during the first day of 2016. Here is what Steve wrote to Huliq.

I never try to forecast the movement of mortgage rates for any client but I can offer an opinion if they ask on what I hear in the news and / or with economic current events. And based on the recent positive jobs report and some of the signals coming from the November Fed meeting it appears the Fed will inch interest rates up at the December meeting. The rate boost I think will be so slight though that it will have a very small effect on the real estate market as the Fed realizes any drastic rates moves could hurt the market in many ways. Just my thoughts for what it's worth.
