previous 15 months\nUnfortunately, hardly more than a week after the Fed halted the program, giant mortgage provider Freddie Mac reports that 30-year home mortgage rates have jumped to 5.21%, up from 5.08% the previous week, and 4.71% in December\nThat’s not good news coming just a few weeks before the government is also scheduled to end its program of $6,000 to $8,000 rebates to new home-buyers, and on the heels of reports that home sales had already been declining again since January.","description":"Freddie Mac reports that 30-year home mortgage rates have jumped to 5.21%, up from 5.08% the
