Seattle Area Mortgage Rate Update: January 3rd, 2011

Average mortgage rates increased again last week, with the average rate on conforming 30-year fixed mortgages rising to 5.02 percent. In December, the average 30-year fixed mortgage rate hit 5 percent for the first time since May 2010. On Nov. 3, mortgage rates were at a record low of 4.42 percent.

Historically, the last time mortgage rates were above 6.0% was in November of 2008. The average rate at that time was 6.33%. A $200,000 loan would have carried a monthly payment of roughly $1,241.86. At today’s 5 percent, the monthly payment for a $200,000 loan would be $1,073.64, a difference of $168 per month for a homeowner.

Average Rates from Bankrate.com:
30 Year Fixed: 5.02% (4.96% last week)
15 Year Fixed: 4.39% (4.29% last week)
5 Year ARM: 4.0% (3.92% last week)

Bankrate’s national weekly mortgage survey is conducted each week from data provided by the top 10 banks and thrifts in the top 10 markets.
