Mortgage Rates in U.S. Dip in April

According to Freddie Mac's latest Primary Mortgage Market Survey (PMMS), average fixed mortgage rates moved down slightly this week and remaining near their 2015 lows as the spring home buying season continues.

Freddie Mac's deputy chief economist Len Kiefer said, "Mortgage rates fell slightly to 3.65 percent this week, positive news for potential home buyers in the market this spring. Purchase applications in 60 of the 100 markets that MiMi tracks are up from the same time last year, including 20 markets that are showing double-digit increases. Reinforcing this positive momentum, existing home sales surged 6.1 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.19 million units in March, the highest annual rate since September 2013. Housing inventory rose 5.3 percent to 2 million homes for sale, but unsold inventory was little changed at a 4.6 month supply."
