Especially true of the longer term adjustable rate mortgages. A year ago, 30-year fixed rates averaged 4.09%, slightly higher than today’s level. Attributed to Sean Becketti, chief economist, Freddie Mac — “Some may be wondering if this is the last time we’ll see a three handle on 30-year fixed rates.

This means upward pressure on long-term rates, like the 30-year fixed-rate, is building.”   Note: Rates indicated do not include fees and points and are provided for evidence of trends only.
