Mortgage Rates Barely Move This Week

DAILY REAL ESTATE NEWS | FRIDAY, MAY 05, 2017

Mortgage rates were mostly in a holding pattern this week, which may have been welcome news to borrowers after last week’s uptick.

“The 10-year Treasury yield remained relatively flat this week, as did the 30-year mortgage rate, which fell 1 basis point to 4.02 percent,” says Sean Becketti, Freddie Mac’s chief economist. “Markets have been erring on the side of caution following a weak advance estimate for first-quarter GDP and the FOMC’s broadly expected decision to leave rates unchanged.”

Freddie Mac reports the following national averages with mortgage rates for the week ending May 4:

  • 30-year fixed-rate mortgages averaged 4.02 percent, with an average 0.5 point, falling slightly from last week’s 4.03 percent average. Last year at this time, 30-year rates averaged 3.61 percent.

  • 15-year fixed-rate mortgages averaged 3.27 percent, with an average 0.5 point, the same average as last week. A year ago, 15-year rates averaged 2.86 percent.

  • 5-year hybrid adjustable-rate mortgages averaged 3.13 percent, with an average 0.5 point, rising from last week’s 3.12 percent average. A year ago, 5-year ARMs averaged 2.80 percent.
