Mortgage Interest Rates Dip Below 3 Percent Last Week For The First Time In 2 Months

Mortgage interest rates dropped below 3% this past week with an average interest rate of 2.97% on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage according to the Freddie Mac Primary Mortgage Market Survey.  As the chart below shows, mortgage interest rates have not been below 3% since February 25, 2021 when they also averaged 2.97%.  Rates are still up from the record low rate of 2.65% in January, but as you can see on the chart, are still at a rate that is historically low!

Now is the time to buy or perhaps refinance your existing mortgage.

Anyone that has been thinking of buying a home should, if able, shift into high geat and find one now to take advantage of the low rates and the increased buying power that comes with it.  The first step would be to get yourself pre-approved and, for that, I would recommend Michael McCarthy with Flat Branch Home Loans…he’s great and our firm does a lot of business with him.  You can find his info at  If you a homeowner with a mortgage and no plans to move, I would also suggest you get in touch with Mike to see how much money you can save by refinancing your existing mortgage at a lower rate.
