(CBS) - Mortgage rates haven't been this high since the summer of 2011.

The average rate on a 30 year fixed loan rose half a percent this week to 4 point 46 percent while the rate on a 15 year loan rose to 3 and a half percent.

Rates starting moving up after the federal reserve said it may start scaling back its stimulus program.

Which would bring an end to a long stretch of super low interest rates.
