Based on Freddie Mac's latest Primary Mortgage Market Survey as of April 20, 2023, the U.S. 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 6.39 percent.
"For the first time in over a month, mortgage rates moved up due to shifting market expectations," said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac's Chief Economist. "Home prices have stabilized somewhat, but with supply tight and rates stuck above six percent, affordable housing continues to be a serious issue for many potential homebuyers. Unless rates drop into the mid five percent range, demand will only modestly recover."
