Mortgage Rates in U.S. Dip in Late July


According to Freddie Mac's latest Primary Mortgage Market Survey, the average U.S. mortgage rate dropped for the second consecutive week in late July 2017.
 
Sean Becketti, chief economist at Freddie Mac said, "The 10-year Treasury yield rose 5 basis points this week while the 30-year mortgage rate dropped 4 basis points to 3.92 percent. Mortgage rates in next week's survey would depend on how the market reacts to the Fed's balance sheet unwinding announcement."
