Mortgage Rates in U.S. Remain Low in Late July

Mortgage Rates in U.S. Remain Low in Late July


According to Freddie Mac's latest Primary Mortgage Market Survey, U.S. 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rates sat at 3.75 percent in late July 2019.

Sam Khater, Freddie Mac's chief economist, says, "Mortgage rates have essentially stabilized over the last two months, which reflects the recovery and improvement in the economy from the malaise earlier in the year. Going forward, the combination of low mortgage rates, tight labor market and high consumer confidence should set up the housing market for continued improvement in home sales heading into the late summer and early fall."
