Mortgage Rates Remain Flat in Late February

Mortgage Rates Remain Flat in Late February


According to Freddie Mac's latest Primary Mortgage Market Survey, U.S. mortgage rates held steady in the last week of February, after declining for three consecutive weeks.

Sam Khater, Freddie Mac's chief economist, says, "Mortgage rates remained mostly unchanged this week, while mortgage applications rose 5.3 percent from the previous week. The general decline in rates we have seen recently, combined with rebounding pending home sales, hint at a strong spring homebuying season."
