Mortgage Interest Rate At Its Lowest In The Last 12 Months

As the rates continue on its slow and steady descent, it is now in its lowest by far in the last 12 months. This is good news to prospective buyers looking to buy their first house or existing homeowners planning to move up to their dream home.

According to Freddie Mac's Primary Mortgage Market Survey, interest rates for a 30-year fixed rate mortgage are currently at their lowest for 2019. Rates like these haven't been seen since February 2018! Last week's survey results reported an interest rate of 4.35%.

This is a welcome change from the near 5% rates seen in mid-November. At 4.32%, the second week of February 2018 was the last time rates were this low.

This can be seen in the chart below.



Freddie Mac's Chief Economist, Sam Khater, had this to say:

"Mortgage rates fell for the third consecutive week, continuing the general downward trend that began late last year.

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."


If you plan on buying a home this spring, meet with a local real estate professional who can help prepare you for today's market before rates increase!
