Mortgage Rates Drop This Week!

Freddie Mac says the 30-year fixed mortgage rate fell to 6.03 percent during the week ended March 6, from 6.24 percent the prior week.

Interest on 15-year, fixed-rate mortgages also declined, falling to 5.47 percent from 5.72 percent over the same period.

The five-year adjustable mortgage rate dipped to 5.34 percent from 5.43 percent, while the one-year ARM dropped to 4.94 percent from 5.11 percent.

Freddie Mac chief economist Frank Nothaft attributes the decrease in mortgage rates to reports of weakness in the job market, manufacturing sector, and consumer confidence.
