Mortgage Rates Continue to “Hover Near Lows”

Great news to share! Home loan interest rates mostly held steady this week near their all-time lows, keeping the purchasing power of home buyers high.

Thirty-year fixed-rate mortgages, the most popular choice among home shoppers, has been below 4 percent every week this year except for one, Freddie Mac reports in its weekly mortgage market survey. Fifteen-year fixed-rate mortgages, which tend to be more popular among refinancers, has remained below 3 percent since the last week in May.

Freddie Mac reports the following average mortgage rates for the week ending Sept. 13:

•30-year fixed-rate mortgages: averaged 3.55 percent, with an average 0.6 point, holding the same as last week. A year ago, 30-year rates averaged 4.09 percent.

•15-year fixed-rate mortgages: averaged 2.85 percent, with an average 0.6 point, down slightly from last week’s 2.86 percent average. A year ago, they averaged 3.30 percent.

•5-year adjustable-rate mortgages: averaged 2.72 percent, with an average 0.6 point, dropping from last week’s 2.75 percent average. Last year at this time, 5-year ARMs averaged 2.99 percent.
