Fixed Mortgage Rates in U.S. Hits New 2017 Low

Residential News » Washington D.C. Edition | By Monsef Rachid | July 3, 2017 7:57 AM ET



According to Freddie Mac's latest Primary Mortgage Market Survey, the average 30-year fixed mortgage rate in the U.S. dropped to a new 2017 low in late June.
 
Sean Becketti, chief economist of Freddie Mac said, "The 30-year mortgage rate fell 2 basis points to 3.88 percent this week. However, the majority of our survey was conducted prior to last Tuesday's sell-off in the bond market which drove Treasury yields higher. Mortgage rates may increase in next week's survey if Treasury yields continue to rise."
