Average US 30-year mortgage rate slips to 4.02 percent

19 May 2017, 07:34 | Melvin Schneider

It was 3.58% in the year-ago week.

"The delayed impact of the associated decline in Treasury yields may push mortgage rates lower in next week's survey", Freddie Mac chief economist Sean Becketti said in a statement. Adjustable mortgage rates were on the decline as well, with the 5-year ARM sinking to 3.42 percent and the 7-year ARM reverting to where it had been two weeks ago at 3.62 percent.

Freddie Mac said the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 4.02% for the week ending May 18, down from 4.05%. A year ago at this time, the 15-year FRM averaged 2.81 percent.

Average commitment rates should be reported along with average fees and points to reflect the total upfront cost of obtaining the mortgage. Only small changes have been noted to 10-year Treasury yields, which often mirror mortgage rate trends.

The faster growth for conventional loans, which tend to be larger, led to another record high for the average purchase loan size at $322 thousand.
