Today's mortgage and refinance rates: November 15, 2022 | Rates remain low after dropping last week

Insider's experts choose the best products and services to help make smart decisions with your money (here’s how). In some cases, we receive a commission from our our partners, however, our opinions are our own. Terms apply to offers listed on this page.

Mortgage rates dropped dramatically late last week and are holding steady today.

Over the past seven days, average 30-year fixed mortgage rates have dropped more than 60 basis points. To put that in perspective, the average borrower getting a mortgage today will pay over $100 less on their monthly mortgage payment than a borrower who locked in their rate a week ago.

Where rates will go next hinges on the economy. Inflation is finally showing signs of coming down, and the Federal Reserve has indicated it may start to slow its pace of increases to the federal funds rate at future meetings. But Fed officials have repeatedly indicated that they aren't ready to stop hiking rates, so mortgage rates could still inch up in December or early 2023 as the central bank continues to try to get price growth under control.

Mortgage calculator

Use our free mortgage calculator to see how today's mortgage rates would impact your monthly payments. By plugging in different rates and term lengths, you'll also understand how much you'll pay over the entire length of your mortgage.

Click "More details" for tips on how to save money on your mortgage in the long run.

30-year fixed mortgage rates

The current average 30-year fixed mortgage rate is 7.08%, according to Freddie Mac. This is an increase from the previous week.

The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is the most common type of home loan. With this type of mortgage, you'll pay back what you borrowed over 30 years, and your interest rate won't change for the life of the loan.

The lengthy 30-year term allows you to spread out your payments over a long period of time, meaning you can keep your monthly payments lower and more manageable. The trade-off is that you'll have a higher rate than you would with shorter terms or adjustable rates. 

15-year fixed mortgage rates

The average 15-year fixed mortgage rate is 6.38%, an increase from the prior week, according to Freddie Mac data. The last time this rate was above 6% was in 2008.

If you want the predictability that comes with a fixed rate but are looking to spend less on interest over the life of your loan, a 15-year fixed-rate mortgage might be a good fit for you. Because these terms are shorter and have lower rates than 30-year fixed-rate mortgages, you could potentially save tens of thousands of dollars in interest. However, you'll have a higher monthly payment than you would with a longer term.

5/1 adjustable mortgage rates

The average 5/1 adjustable mortgage rate is 6.06%, an increase from the previous week. This is also the first time this rate has surpassed 6% since 2008.

Adjustable rate mortgages can look very attractive to borrowers when rates are high, because the rates on these mortgages are typically lower than fixed mortgage rates. A 5/1 ARM is a 30-year mortgage. For the first five years, you'll have a fixed rate. After that, your rate will adjust once per year. If rates are higher when your rate adjusts, you'll have a higher monthly payment than what you started with.

If you're considering an ARM, make sure you understand how much your rate could go up each time it adjusts and how much it could ultimately increase over the life of the loan.

Are mortgage rates going up?

Mortgage rates started ticking up from historic lows in the second half of 2021 and have increased significantly so far in 2022.

In the last 12 months, the Consumer Price Index rose by 7.7%. The Federal Reserve has been working to get inflation under control, and is expected to increase the federal funds target rate two more times this year, following increases at its previous five meetings.

Though not directly tied to the federal funds rate, mortgage rates are sometimes pushed up as a result of Fed rate hikes and investor expectations of how those hikes will impact the economy.

Inflation remains elevated, but has started to slow, which is a good sign for mortgage rates and the broader economy. 

How do I find personalized mortgage rates?

Some mortgage lenders let you customize your mortgage rate on their websites by entering your down payment amount, zip code, and credit score. The resulting rate isn't set in stone, but it can give you an idea of what you'll pay.

If you're ready to start shopping for homes, you may apply for preapproval with a lender. The lender does a hard credit pull and looks at the details of your finances to lock in a mortgage rate.

Are HELOCs a good idea right now?

Many homeowners gained a lot of equity over that past couple of years as home prices increased at an unprecedented rate. But because rates are so high now, tapping into that equity can be expensive. 

For homeowners looking to leverage their home's value to cover a big purchase — such as a home renovation — a home equity line of credit (HELOC) may still be a good option. 

A HELOC is a line of credit that lets you borrow against the equity in your home. It works similarly to a credit card in that you borrow what you need rather than getting the full amount you're borrowing in a lump sum. 

Depending on your finances and the type of HELOC you get, you may be able to get a better rate with a HELOC than you would with a home equity loan or a cash-out refinance. Just keep in mind that HELOC rates are variable, so if rates start to trend up further, yours will likely increase, as well.
