With a roaring jobs report, and the economy growing in the third quarter at an annualized rate of 3.5%, wages up, an unemployment rate well below 4%, and amidst high consumer confidence levels, the Fed is almost sure to raise the interest rate to 2.5% at their December meeting. This will be the fourth interest rate boost this year, deployed as a measure against unsustainable growth.    As mortgage rates often move in anticipation of the Fed meeting and possible/probably rate boosts, it no surprise that the week of November 1-8, 2018 saw a jump in mortgage interest rates.  Freddy Mac pegs the average 30 year fixed rate mortgage at 4.94%- a seven year high.
