Freddie Mac reports the following national averages with mortgage rates for the week ending May 9:

  • 30-year fixed-rate mortgages: averaged 4.10%, with an average 0.5 point, falling from last week’s 4.14% average. Last year at this time, 30-year rates averaged 4.55%.
  • 15-year fixed-rate mortgages: averaged 3.57%, with an average 0.4 point, falling from last week’s 3.60% average. A year ago, 15-year rates averaged 4.01%.
  • 5-year hybrid adjustable-rate mortgages: averaged 3.63%, with an average 0.4 point, falling from last week’s 3.68% average. A year ago, 5-year ARMs averaged 3.77%.

 

“A combination of low mortgage rates, a strong job market, and modest wage growth should spur home buyer interest and also serve as an incentive for homeowners looking to refinance this spring,” says Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s chief economist.
