For the first time ever – 30-Year Mortgage Rates Drop Below 4%
30-Year Mortgage Rates Drop Below 4%
For the first time ever, 30-year fixed-rate mortgages fell below 4 percent. In the last month mortgage rates have continued to set new weekly record lows, but the 30-year mortgages’ latest drop to 3.94% may be an important threshold for potential buyers. The 30-year mortgage is the most popular financing option of buyers. 15-year fixed averaged 3.26%, another all time low.
Home buyers taking out loans for purchase is expected to more than double in the next two years.
