Rates for the 30-yr. fixed mortgage stayed below 5 percent for the third straight week; dropping further to 4.83 percent from 4.91 percent. The average 15-year fixed mortgage rate decreased as well to 4.32 percent from 4.36 percent.
This week’s 4.83% is closing on the record low 4.78% that occurred last Spring and is still propelling buyers. One in 20 Americans say they plan to buy a home within the next year, and they’re most likely to be 34 years old or younger and living in the South or West, according to a Move.com survey. Roughly a quarter of potential buyers said the No. 1 reason they would buy now is because prices appear to have bottomed out. That reason topped bargain-priced foreclosures, worries about rising interest rates and a wide selection of homes.
According to mortgage experts polled by Bankrate.com, 55 percent expect rates to remain the same over the next 30 to 45 days; while 45 percent foresee an increase and no one expects further reduction.
