Mortgage rates for fixed rate programs were down on average this week reports mortgage rate research website, ForTheBestRate.com, continuing a period of availability of extremely low cost home financing for qualified home owners and buyers.

The weekly survey of mortgage rates released by Freddie Mac, a government sponsored enterprise and purchaser of mortgage loans on the secondary market, on Thursday, April 18th, 2013 also showed the fall in pricing. The data indicated that 30 year fixed mortgage rates dropped to an average of 3.41% (0.7 points), down from 3.43% (0.8 points) the week before. 15 year fixed rates were also down just slightly on average to 2.64% (0.7 points) from 2.65% (0.7 points) one week earlier. 5 year adjustable rate pricing moved lower to 2.60% (0.5 points) on average, down from 2.62% (0.5 points.)

“This latest dip in rates is excellent news for those currently in the home buying process,” commented Shaun Hamman, VP of Residential Lending at American Financial Resources, a National mortgage lender. “It can often take buyers some time to find the right home and negotiate a contract once the decision is made to purchase real estate. Large rate fluctuations can add stress to the whole operation, making the current low rate environment particularly attractive,” he continued.
