Mortgage Rates Drop Below 5%


For the first time since April, Rates hit 4.99% last week, falling swiftly from 13-year high of 5.81% in June.

In Summary, last week:

  • Inflation was at 9.1%

  • Wages and salaries were up 5.7% year over year

  • Rents rose 12.3% year over year

  • Oil supply is low and can affect inflation

The average rate on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was down from 5.30% a week earlier, according to a survey by mortgage giant Freddie Mac published last Thursday, offering a reprieve to prospective home buyers who have been hit this year with higher rates and surging prices. But with last Thursday's swirling headlines, those on the inside track shared it was somewhat old news considering the availability of even lower rates the week before (!), so be sure you are matched with a Lender who is tracking the volatility of our market and striking when the best rate can be secured.


And Watch Dion Rabouin for his temperature on how HOT or COLD the Housing Market really is.
