Summary Box: Mortgage rates rise

RATES JUMP: Freddie Mac said the average rate for 30-year fixed loans pulled away from its lowest level in decades and rose to 4.39 percent this week from 4.17 percent.

TREASURYS TO BLAME: Rates rose because Treasury yields rose to their highest level since July. Mortgage rates tend to track those yields.

BORROWERS PULL BACK: Mortgage applications to buy homes and to refinance dropped 14.4 percent as rates increased.
