Mortgage rates were down this week in Freddie Mac’s Weekly Survey, despite the increased volatility in the bond markets. The 30 Year Fixed Rate Mortgage was at 3.05% in today’s Freddie Mac survey and the 15 Year Fixed Rate Mortgage was at 2.30%. While still low by historical standards, rates may rise over the longer term because of inflation, upward pressure on bond rates and other interest rates, and the anticipated cessation in purchases of new mortgage bonds by the Federal Reserve in the spring.
Freddie Mac’s Weekly Survey was released this morning with its most recent assessment of the mortgage rate landscape. See the details of their survey below.
