Freddie Mac’s Weekly Mortgage Survey reveals mortgage rates remain low

Every Thursday morning, Freddie Mac publishes the Prime Mortgage Market Survey, a weekly report based on conventional rates from the previous week. It’s an average and it’s also “old news” as a borrower cannot lock in last week’s rates… they can only lock in what’s available “now”.  Last week’s survey shows that rates are remaining at historically low levels.

With that said, I don’t anticipate that rates will remain at these low levels forever. It will be interesting to see how having a new Fed Chair, assuming President Trump retires Janet Yellen as he’s indicating, will impact the direction of mortgage interest rates.

What we do know is rates are low “now” and that many home owners are appreciating increased equity… so if you’ve been considering refinancing, you may want to get the ball rolling.
