Lower Mortgage Rates to Start the Week

The average 30-year, fixed mortgage rate is sliding, down to 4.41 percent this past week, according to the latest Freddie Mac Primary Mortgage Market Survey® (PMMS®). The average 15-year, fixed mortgage rate stands at 3.84 percent, while the average five-year, Treasury-indexed hybrid adjustable mortgage rate stands at 3.91 percent.
"The U.S. economy remains on solid ground, inflation is contained and the threat of higher short-term rates is fading from view, which has allowed mortgage rates to drift down to their lowest level in 10 months," says Sam Khater, chief economist at Freddie Mac. "This is great news for consumers who will be looking for homes during the upcoming spring home-buying season. Mortgage rates are essentially similar to a year ago, but today's buyers have a larger selection of homes and more consumer bargaining power than they did the last few years."
