Freddie Mac's results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey® shows that "As the economy works to get back to its pre-pandemic self, and the fight against COVID-19 variants unfolds, owners and buyers continue to benefit from some of the lowest mortgage rates of all-time. Largely due to the current environment, the 30-year fixed-rate remains below three percent for the fifth consecutive week while the 15-year fixed-rate hits another record low."
• 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 2.8 percent with an average 0.7 points for the week ending July 29, 2021, down from last month when it averaged 3.02 percent. A year ago, at this time, the 30-year FRM averaged 2.99 percent.
• 15-year FRM this week averaged 2.1 percent with an average 0.7 points, down from last month when it averaged 2.34 percent. A year ago, at this time, the 15-year FRM averaged 2.51 percent.
