September a Volatile Month as Mortgage Rates Dip Again in U.S.


According to Freddie Mac's latest Primary Mortgage Market Survey, the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage in the U.S. averaged 3.64 percent. September 2019 has been the most volatile month since March, in terms of the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage, averaging a weekly movement of 11 basis points.

Sam Khater, Freddie Mac's Chief Economist, says, "With both the unemployment rate and mortgage rate below four percent and near historic lows, it is no surprise that the housing market regained momentum with home sales and construction at or near decade highs. The fall housing market is poised to continue with steady gains in prices and solid sales activity."
