Freddie Mac (OTC:) today released the results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey, showing that the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 4.42 percent.
This week, the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage increased by more than a quarter of a percent as mortgage rates across all loan types continued to move up, said Sam Khater, Freddie Macs Chief Economist. Rising inflation, escalating geopolitical uncertainty and the Federal Reserves actions are driving rates higher and weakening consumers purchasing power. In short, the rise in mortgage rates, combined with continued house price appreciation, is increasing monthly mortgage payments and quickly affecting homebuyers ability to keep up with the market.
- 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 4.42 percent with an average 0.8 point for the week ending March 24, 2022, up from last week when it averaged 4.16 percent. A year ago at this time, the 30-year FRM averaged 3.17 percent.
- 15-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 3.63 percent with an average 0.8 point, up from last week when it averaged 3.39 percent. A year ago at this time, the 15-year FRM averaged 2.45 percent.
