Long Beach Island Mortgage Update

Rates fell back in the past week. For the week ending January 4, Freddie Mac announced that 30-year fixed rates decreased to 3.95% from 3.99% the week before. The average for 15-year loans decreased to 3.38% and the average for five-year adjustables fell to 3.45%. A year ago, 30-year fixed rates averaged 4.20%, approximately 0.25% higher than today. Attributed to Sean Becketti, chief economist, Freddie Mac — “Treasury yields fell from a week ago, helping to drive rates on home loans down to start the year. Rates on 30-year fixed-rate loans fell 4 basis points from a week ago to 3.95% in the year’s first survey. Despite increases in short-term interest rates, long-term interest rates remain subdued. The 30-year rate is down a quarter of a percentage point from where it was a year ago and the spread between the 30-year fixed and 5/1 adjustable rate loans is the lowest since 2009. With the FOMC minutes showing continued support for gradual increases in rates and inflation rates remaining low, there isn’t much upward pressure on long-term rates at the moment. Whether that changes due to a tighter labor market and the economic impact of tax reform remains to be seen.” Note: Rates indicated do not include fees and points and are provided for evidence of trends only.
