WHERE ARE MORTGAGE INTEREST RATES HEADED? “One thing seems certain: we aren’t likely to see average 30-year fixed mortgage rates return to the historic lows experienced in 2012.” - Freddie Mac, March 24, 2014 There are those that hope that 30-year mortgage interest rates will head back under 4%. Obviously, for any prospective home purchaser that would be great news. However, there is probably a greater chance that interest rates will return to the greater than 6% rate of the last decade before they would return to the less than 3.5% rate of 2012. Freddie Mac, on their blog, explained that current rates are still extremely low compared to historic averages. “The all-time record low – since Freddie Mac began tracking mortgage rates in 1971 – was 3.31% in November 2012. Conversely, the all-time record high occurred in October of 1981, hitting 18.63%. That’s more than four times higher than today’s average 30-year fixed rate of 4.32% as of March 20... rates hovering around 4.5% may be high relative to last year, but something to celebrate compared to almost any year since 1971.” And Freddie Mac projects mortgage rates will increase going forward. If you are thinking of purchasing a home, waiting for a dramatic decrease in mortgage rates might not make sense.
