The forecast for mortgage rates in 2021

Mortgage rates should stay low for a little longer, but you may see rates start rising in late summer or fall.

Mortgage rates heavily rely on employment and inflation in the US. When employment numbers and inflation improve, mortgage rates increase; when they get worse, mortgage rates decrease.

Unemployment and inflation need to have long-term, steady growth for mortgage rates to increase, though. If both continue to improve over the next couple of months, we could see higher rates.
