Mortgage Rates Show Little Movement

Fri, 2017-09-15 23:00

Mortgage rates showed little movement this week, with the 30-year, fixed rate averaging 3.78 percent, unchanged from the week prior, according to the recently released Freddie Mac Primary Mortgage Market Survey® (PMMS®). The 15-year, fixed rate averaged 3.08 percent, also unchanged from the week prior, while the 5-year, Treasury-indexed hybrid adjustable rate averaged 3.13 percent, down from 3.15 percent the week prior.

“Following a sharp decline last week, the 10-year Treasury yield rose 11 basis points this week,” says Sean Becketti, chief economist at Freddie Mac. “The 30-year mortgage rate, however, remained unchanged at 3.78 percent. If Treasury yields continue to rise, mortgage rates could see an increase in next week’s survey.”

Fri, 2017-09-15 15:03

A home's affordability goes way beyond the monthly mortgage -- it includes insurance, maintenance, utilities, taxes and other unforeseen to-dos along the way. So, how do these extra costs impact a buyer's ability to actually afford the home they've been eyeing? According to a joint study by Zillow and Thumbtack, the average U.S. homeowner will spend $9,080 on these expenses per year, which breaks down to an extra $757 per month on top of the mortgage ...
