Today's Mortgage, Refinance Rates: Jan. 15, 2022 | Rates Continue to Inch Upward
Mortgage rates have been getting higher over the past few weeks, but they're still low overall. Mortgage rates tend to be low when the economy is struggling, and the coronavirus pandemic has hurt the US economy. The Federal Reserve has been aggressively purchasing assets, including mortgage-backed securities, to help the economy.
