Rates for home loans powered to the highest since 2011, setting up a fresh test for a housing market already strained by lean supply and surging prices.

The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 4.61% in the week ending May 17, mortgage finance provider Freddie Mac said Thursday. That was a 6 basis point jump, and marked the highest for the popular product since May, 2011. ...

“The prospect of rates approaching 5% could begin to hit the psyche of some prospective buyers,” Freddie Chief Economist Sam Khater said.

Probably at just about 5% if you were to lock in your rates now. Give it a few weeks and people get used to it. If they expect rates to immediately go higher, they will be even more desperate to find a home and lock in their rates.
