 Rates for the 30-yr. fixed mortgage dropped below the 5% benchmark once again going from 5.05 percent to 4.97 percent. This time last year the 30-year average was 5.15 percent. The average 15-year fixed mortgage rate also decreased to 4.33 percent from 4.40 percent the previous week.

“30-year fixed mortgages fell below 5 percent to match levels seen two weeks ago and are helping to maintain affordable home-purchase conditions,” said Frank Nothaft, Freddie Mac vice president and chief economist. “In fact, monthly principal and interest mortgage payments for a typical family buying a median-priced home of $163,800 were just $709 in January, the lowest amount since February 1998, according to the National Association of Realtors®..
