30 year and 15 year fixed mortgage rate averages fell to record lows according to Freddie Mac's market survey which came out earlier this morning. The 30 year average came in at 3.91% with 0.7 points. This was down 0.03% from last week's all-time low. The 15 year fixed rate average tied last week's number at 3.21% with 0.8 points. Last year at this same period the 30 year average was 4.87% and the 15 year average was 4.15%. The survey also highlighted the 5/1 treasury indexed ARM average at 2.85% with 0.6 points.
Freddie Mac's Chief economist, Frank Nothaft noted that "Rates on 30-year fixed mortgages have been at or below 4 percent for the last eight weeks and now are almost 0.9 percentage points below where they were at the beginning of the year, which means that today's homebuyers are paying over $1,200 less per year on a $200,000 loan."
