Mortgage rates average 3.23% | South Salem Real Estate

Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) today released the results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey® (PMMS®), showing that the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 3.23 percent, the lowest rate in our survey’s history which dates back to 1971.

“The size and depth of the secondary mortgage market is helping to keep rates at record lows. These low rates are driving higher refinance activity and have modestly helped improve purchase demand from their extremely low levels in mid-April,” said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s Chief Economist. “While many people are benefitting from low mortgage rates, it’s important to remember that not all people are able to take advantage of them given the current pandemic.”

Mortgage rates rise to 3.88% | North Salem Real Estate

 Here’s how mortgage rates have changed this week The benchmark 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rose this week to 3.88 percent from 3.77 percent, according to Bankrate’s weekly survey of large lenders. The rise in rates may be partly due to constrained capacity at the nation’s mortgage lenders, which are coping with a more than four-fold increase in applications as rates have plunged during the coronavirus pandemic.

The rates that Bankrate collects each week are national averages from larger lenders in big cities. You will probably be able to find rates lower than these averages by shopping a variety of lenders and being persistent when your phone calls to lenders take longer to be answered. Need a loan ? read the information of GTRwallet.com, you can find everything regarding loans and lenders.

Keep in mind that mortgage closings are being extended as all phases of the process are overwhelmed with additional work. For a new mortgage, it’s wise to request an interest rate lock of at least 45 days and preferably 60 days. Locks aren’t free–the longer the lock, the higher the rate you will be quoted.

These are extraordinary times for homeowners, homebuyers and lenders, so please be patient. Bankrate is here to help, with news, data and information about all aspects of mortgages and real estate, just visit <!–td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}–>

Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) today released the results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey® (PMMS®), showing that the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 3.72 percent.

“The combination of improved economic data and market sentiment has led to stability in mortgage rates, which have hovered around 3.7 percent for nearly the last two months,” said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s Chief Economist. “The stability is welcome news after the interest rate turbulence of the last year, which caused a slowdown in the housing market and other interest rate sensitive sectors. The low mortgage rate environment combined with the red-hot labor market is setting the stage for a continued rise in home sales and home prices.”

Mortgage rates average 3.73% | Chappaqua Real Estate

Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) today released the results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey® (PMMS®), showing that the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 3.73 percent, ticking up from last week.

“With Federal Reserve policy on cruise control and the economy continuing to grow at a steady pace, mortgage rates have stabilized as the market searches for direction,” said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s Chief Economist. “The risk of an economic downturn has receded and, combined with the very strong job market, it should lead to a slightly higher rate environment.”

Khater continued, “Since early September, when mortgage rates posted the year low of 3.49 percent, rates have moved up to 3.73 percent this week. Often, while higher mortgage rates are deleterious, improved economic sentiment is the reason that these higher rates have not impacted mortgage demand so far.”
