Mortgage Rates Tick Down Again in U.S.

Mortgage Rates Tick Down Again in U.S.


According to Freddie Mac's latest Primary Mortgage Market Survey for early August 2017, the 30-year fixed mortgage rate dropped to its lowest point in six weeks.
 
Sean Becketti, chief economist of Freddie Mac commented, "After holding relatively flat last week, the 10-year Treasury yield fell 4 basis points this week. The 30-year mortgage rate moved in tandem with Treasury yields, dropping 3 basis points to 3.90 percent. Earlier this week, Federal Reserve officials highlighted the influence of continued weak inflation data on rates."
