If there was ever a doubt that now is the time to invest in real estate check out this near record low rate of 3.35% just out from Freddie Mac!
The 15-year fixed mortgage, popular with homeowners refinancing loans, set a record low for the second straight week, falling from 2.61% to 2.56%, Freddie said in its weekly tally of what lenders are offering to solid borrowers.
The long-running survey recorded an all-time record low of 3.31% for the 30-year fixed loan on Nov. 21, which rose to 3.63% on March 14, and has since tailed off amid a weak economic recovery and little sign that inflation is a concern. It was at an even 3.4% last week.
Freddie Mac asks lenders each Monday through Wednesday about the terms they are offering to borrowers with down payments of 20% or more, solid credit scores and the capacity to repay their debts.
The borrowers in the latest survey would have paid an average of 0.7% of the loan amount in fees and points to the lender.
