MORTGAGE RATES HEAD HIGHER

Mortgage rates around the country rose this week but are still at levels that should continue to provide support to the vibrant housing market, analysts say.

Rates on 30-year, fixed-rate mortgages averaged 5.70 percent for the week ending Nov. 4, Freddie Mac said in its weekly survey released Thursday. That was up from 5.64 percent last week.

For 15-year, fixed-rate mortgages, a popular option for refinancing, rates rose this week to 5.08 percent, up from 5.01 percent last week. For one-year adjustable rate mortgages, rates averaged 4 percent this week, compared with 3.96 percent last week.
