                                                                                Weekly Mortgage Rate Update

 

Ahead of the holiday weekend, this week's economic data contained few surprises, and the attacks in Brussels had little impact on U.S. financial markets. As a result, mortgage rates ended the week with little change. 

THIS WEEK'S RATE TREND IS       DOWN/FLAT

 

On the heels of last week's decision by the Fed to keep rates unchanged, mortgage rates dropped slightly this week, after four straight weeks of increases “The Federal Reserve’s decision last week to maintain the current level of the Federal funds rate combined with the reduction in their forecast for growth triggered a 3-basis point drop in the 10-year Treasury yield,” says Sean Becketti, Freddie Mac’s chief economist. “As a consequence, the 30-year mortgage rate declined 2 basis points to 3.71 percent. However, comments this week by several members of the Fed, including the presidents of the Richmond, San Francisco, and Atlanta banks, indicated that a June rate hike is still on the table.” Freddie Mac reports the following national averages with mortgage rates for the week ending March 24 30-year fixed-rate mortgages: averaged 3.71 percent, with an average 0.5 point, dropping from last week’s 3.73 percent average. Last year at this time, 30-year rates averaged 3.69 percent. 15-year fixed-rate mortgages: averaged 2.96 percent, with an average 0.4 point, falling from last week’s 2.99 percent average. A year ago, 15-year rates averaged 2.97 percent. 5-year hybrid adjustable-rate mortgages: averaged 2.89 percent, with an average 0.5 point, dropping from last week’s 2.93 percent average. Last year at this time, 5-year ARMs averaged 2.92 percent. Source: Freddie Mac
