Thirty-Year Rate Jumps Back Up Above 4% Mark in One Week's Time

 The run for below-four-percent 30-year mortgage rates was short-lived. After a history-making drop to 3.94 percent last week, Freddie Mac has recorded an 18 basis point jump in the average interest rate on a conventional fixed-rate mortgage with a 30-year term. The GSE says the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 4.12 percent (0.8 point) for the week ending October 13, coming off last week's record low in which the 30-year rate dipped below the 4 percent mark for the first time ever. The 30-year rate is not too far off of levels since last year at this time, when it was averaging 4.19 percent.

Mortgage Rates Hit Record Low

The rate on the 30-year fixed mortgage fell to 3.94%, the lowest rate ever. This marks the first time the average rate has fallen below 4%. The average rate on a 15-year fixed loan also dropped to a record low of 3.26%.  If you're considering purchasing a home, visit Century 21 Mortgage for quick pre-approval to see how much home you can afford, then visit Century 21 Associates to search for properties that meet you needs.
