Rates are heading back up, if you haven’t locked in a rate in the 4’s you are about to miss the boat. 

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Treasury yields have been climbing higher since fall 2010, as the economy begins to show signs of improvement. As a result, mortgage rates have been moving higher as well.

The national average interest for a 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage was 5.05% in the week ended Feb. 11 — marking the first time since May 2010 that the popular consumer borrowing rate topped the 5% barrier, according to Freddie Mac’s Primary Mortgage Market Survey. The data factors in an average of 0.8 points in fees that the average borrower paid to lower his or her rate.
