Market uncertainty over the state of the economy helped push interest rates for some mortgages back up above 6 percent this week, Freddie Mac said in releasing its weekly rate survey.

The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 6.09 percent with an average 0.7 point for the week ending Sept. 25, up from 5.78 percent a week ago but well below the 6.63 percent peak for the year seen in July. A year ago, lenders were charging 6.42 percent for 30-year FRMs.
