Decreasing bond value pushes to higher mortgage rates

Financially speaking, a bond is a debt instrument that based on a current rate pays interests with certain periodicity and investors attracted to profit from those bonds may see their principal invested upon maturity of the bond.
Since the mortgage rates having remarkably low due to a slow pace economy, the profit of the bonds do not seem to be as attractive as before, therefore the price of the bonds for future debts seems to be lowering.
To make the price of the bonds more attractive, there is a need in the market for an increase on the mortgage rates to avoid investors looking for different industries or markets where to invest in search for a higher return.
In short: Mortgage rates may see an increase in the current year.
Advice: Lock your mortgage rates now or soon, however do not fall into the innocent category where you only pay attention to the rate, as a mortgage may be more convenient when including other terms like being portable or assumable.
If you need to switch from your current lender, that may not be a problem as some of our lenders offer free switch and transfers helping to pay the penalties originated by the early switch or transfers in order to save the costs to the borrower and win their business
