Mortgage Interest Rates Hardly Moved This Week

Up Arrow - JTEToday, 4/3/2014,  Freddie Mac reported that the average mortgage interest rate for 30 year fixed-rate mortgage was 4.41 up from 4.40% last week. The average interest rate for 15 year fixed-rate mortgages was 3.47%, up from 3.42% last week. A year ago the 30 year rate was 3.54%.

Freddie Mac's spokesperson said, "Mortgage rates were little changed amid a week of light economic reports. Of the few releases, real GDP was revised up slightly to 2.6 percent growth in the fourth quarter of 2013. The private sector added an estimated 191,000 jobs in March, which followed an upward revision of 39,000 jobs in February according to the ADP Research Institute. Also, the Institute for Supply Management reported the manufacturing industry rebounded from a soft February but was still below market consensus."

Do keep in mind that we are a very large country, So figures that come out for the entire nation, may have little or no relevance for your particular area. In the end, it is best if you speak with a local REALTOR or financing expert to see what the situation is for your part of the United States. Florida is not Michigan, nor is Maine the same as California. Market conditions can be very different from place-to-place. Also, your own credit history, the property you want to buy, etc. will effect your specific loan options and interest rates. Your mortgage broker or bank loan officer can give you more specific information.

If you want to learn more about Freddie Mac or see the details of their survey, go to: www.freddiemac.com and click on the link for "Current Weekly Survey". They break down the survey by specific regions in the United States so you can see how your state compares to other parts of the country. They also explain the mission of Freddie Mac and offer a lot of useful information for consumers.

If you would like to speak with a local lender you can find several at my website: www.jelwell.century21bnr.com

You can also contact your own bank, credit union, or mortgage broker to see what your particular interest rate would be, should you decide to finance a home purchase.
