We continue to see a high volume of homeowners refinancing and taking advantage of these incredibly low mortgage rates
Wilmington, NC (PRWEB) November 25, 2011
BurlingtonMortgage.biz reports that mortgage rates have been largely unchanged throughout the month of November with home loan pricing hovering just above the record low levels reached in early October. Mortgage lenders are responding to increased demand for US Treasury Bonds with extremely competitive mortgage pricing. On November 17th, 2011 30 year mortgage rates as low as 3.625% (Points: 1, Fees: $1995, APR: 3.789%, Lender: AimLoan.com) were posted on BurlingtonMortgage.biz. Advertised 15 year mortgage rates went as low as 2.875% (Points: 1.727, Fees: $1995, APR: 3.273%, Lender: Amerisave Mortgage Corporation.)
Sustained low mortgage pricing was also reported by Freddie Mac, a government sponsored enterprise that purchases residential mortgage loans in the secondary market, in its weekly Primary Mortgage Market Survey(R). In the report published Thursday, November 17th 30 year fixed rate pricing was shown to average 4.00% during the previous week (0.7 points), up just 0.01% from the report one week earlier. The average 15 year fixed mortgage rates also rose 0.01% to 3.31% (0.7 points.)
The average 5/1 ARM pricing also changed by just 0.01%, but fell that amount to 2.97% (0.6 points.)
"We continue to see a high volume of homeowners refinancing and taking advantage of these incredibly low mortgage rates," said Shaun Hamman, VP of Residential Lending at American Financial Resources, a National mortgage lender. "Lots of people are choosing to move to a 15 year loan. They're often surprised to see that their payment doesn't go up as much as they might think, and the interest savings are so substantial it can make a huge impact on their overall net worth down the road," he continued.
