Mortgage Rates Down For Fifth Straight Week

Mortgage rates continued their downward trajectory for the fifth consecutive week, according to the Primary Mortgage Market Survey published by Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC).

The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 7.22% as of Nov. 30, down from last week when it averaged 7.29%. A year ago at this time, it averaged 6.49%.

The 15-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 6.56%, down from last week when it averaged 6.67%. A year ago at this time, it averaged 5.76%.

“Market sentiment has significantly shifted over the last month, leading to a continued decline in mortgage rates,” said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s chief economist. “The current trajectory of rates is an encouraging development for potential homebuyers, with purchase application activity recently rising to the same level as mid-September when rates were similar to today’s levels. The modest uptick in demand over the last month signals that there will likely be more competition in a market that remains starved for inventory.”
