Rates Drop for 5th Week In Row
Inman News reported that mortgage rates are down from 4.68 percent last week and 4.84 percent a year ago. There are many local and personal factors that can drop this even lower. Our Zillow calculator (at right) is showing an even lower 4.42%. Rates on 30-year fixed-rate mortgages hit an all-time low in Freddie Mac records dating to 1971 of 4.17 percent during the week ending Nov. 11, 2010, before climbing to a 2011 high of 5.05 percent in February.
