National Mortgage Rates

April 15th, 2019 by Michael Mahoney

After posting their biggest drop in a decade last week, mortgage rates remain at multi-month lows—and borrowers are rushing to take advantage.The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 4.08 percent this week, Freddie Mac reports in its weekly mortgage market survey. Mortgage applications surged 18.6 percent last week as borrowers locked in lower financing costs, the Mortgage Bankers Association reports.

“While the housing market has faced many headwinds the last few months, it sailed through the turbulence to calmer seas with demand buttressed by a strong labor market and low mortgage rates. The benefits of the decline in mortgage rates that we’ve seen this year will continue to unfold over the next few months due to the lag from changes in mortgage rates to market sentiment and ultimately home sales.” Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s chief economist.

  • 30-year fixed-rate mortgages: averaged 4.08 percent, with an average 0.5 point, rising from last week’s 4.06 percent average. Last year at this time, 30-year rates averaged 4.40 percent.
  • 15-year fixed-rate mortgages: averaged 3.56 percent, with an average 0.4 point, dropping from last week’s 3.57 percent average. A year ago, 15-year rates averaged 3.87 percent.
  • 5-year Treasury-indexed hybrid adjustable-rate mortgages: averaged 3.66 percent, with an average 0.4 point, falling from last week’s 3.75 percent average. A year ago, 5-year ARMs averaged 3.62 percent.

We had been trying to sell our condo for well over a year and decided to give Mike a shot at it as he came well recommended. It was not easy for him but he persisted and had success. Even though it wasn't a big sale or profit for him, he acted as though it... (more)
