Poll: Will Rising Rates Delay Your Housing Search?: Figure 1

Last week, long-term interest rates spiked, rising to their highest rate in 18 months. On Thursday morning, Freddie Mac reported 4.46 percent with an average 0.8 point as the average on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage. Rates were last as this level in July 2011.
