Mortgage rates for 30-year fixed loans held firm yet again, while 15-year fixed loans slipped lower and 5/1 ARMs were unchanged, according to a NerdWallet survey of mortgage rates published by national lenders Wednesday morning.
Yesterday’s economic reports were essentially a non-event. The news was mixed: a little good, a little not-so-good, but all in all pretty much as expected. It was only enough to nudge 15-year fixed loans down a fraction. Friday’s U.S. employment report is the next scheduled gauge of the domestic economy of major significance.
For homeowners, no news is good news. Mortgage rates continue to drift sideways, holding on to 2017 lows. Thirty-year fixed mortgage rates near 4% — even lower at some lenders — are just about as good as they get. That’s half their 44-year historical average of 8%.
Interest rates on home loans are not the problem for home buyers these days. In many parts of the country, a continued lack of home inventory remains the barrier to homeownership.
