Mortgage Rates Lumbering Low

Freddie Mac’s PMMS shows mortgage rates remaining at low levels.

From Freddie Mac’s Chief Economist, Sam Khater:
“While the economy continues to grow, it has lost momentum over the last two months due to the current wave of new COVID cases that has led to weaker employment, lower spending and declining consumer confidence. Consequently, mortgage rates dropped early this summer and have stayed steady despite increases in inflation caused by supply and demand imbalances…”

The rates posted above are an average from last week and, as you know if you’re a long time reader of The Mortgage Porter, mortgage rates change constantly as they are based on bonds. The PMMS report shows you where mortgage rates have been and is a good indicator for past trends. It does not necessarily show you where mortgage rates are now.
