Based on Freddie Mac's latest Primary Mortgage Market Survey, the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 7.29 percent. This week's results include an adjustment for the observance of Thanksgiving.
"Mortgage rates continued to decrease heading into the Thanksgiving holiday," said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac's Chief Economist. "In recent weeks, rates have dropped by half a percent, but potential homebuyers continue to hold out for lower rates and more inventory. This dynamic is reflected in the latest data showing that existing home sales have fallen to a thirteen-year low."
