Market Watch – Rates Drop – Housing Red Hot
This week we’ve seen rates drop below 3 percent for the first time in months. Freddie Mac reported the average for 30-year-rate-mortgage was 2.97%. This is the first drop below 3% in months and makes refinancing more attractive. The 15 year rate was nearly 2 and a quarter with Freddie reporting the 15-year fixed-rate average was 2.29%
The housing marketing remains scorching hot. Cities are seeing increased activity now as well.
