Lower Mortgage Rates Reported by Freddie Mac

“Mortgage rates … [are] continuing the general downward trend that began late last year,” Khater says. “Wages are growing on par with home prices for the first time in years, and with more inventory available, spring home sales should help the market begin to recover from the malaise of the last few months.” Freddie Mac Chief Economist Sam Khater

Freddie Mac reports the following national averages for mortgage rates for the week ending Feb. 21:

  • 30-year fixed-rate mortgages: averaged 4.35 percent ,with an average 0.5 point, dropping from last week’s 4.37 percent average. Last year at this time, 30-year rates averaged 4.40 percent.
  • 15-year fixed-rate mortgages: averaged 3.78 percent, with an average 0.4 point, falling from last week’s 3.81 percent average. A year ago at this time, 15-year rates averaged 3.85 percent.
  • 5-year hybrid adjustable-rate mortgages: averaged 3.84 percent, with an average 0.3 point, falling from last week’s 3.88 percent average. A year ago, 5-year ARMs averaged 3.65 percent.
