Even for those with some credit issues or less equity in their properties, pricing can still be very very low, and represent significant savings over loans taken out just a few years ago

30 year fixed mortgage rates are unchanged since setting a new record low the first week of February, according to mortgage rate research website, ForTheBestRate.com. Holding steady at an average of 3.87% (0.8 points) 30 year home loans are as inexpensive as they have ever been since records have been kept. 15 year fixed rate pricing averaged 3.16% (0.8 points) this week, up only slightly from the record low of 3.14% (0.8 points.)

Mortgage borrowers with excellent credit and desirable (less risky) loan scenarios may be able to find mortgage rates even lower than the current averages. On Friday, February 17 30 year fixed rates as low as 3.500% (APR: 3.641%, Points: 1.25, Fees: $950, Lender: United Pacific Mortgage) were posted in the rate tables on the website. For the 15 year fixed product pricing was advertised as low as 2.750% (APR: 2.886%, Points: 0, Fees: $1899, Lender: Absolute Mortgage.)

"This is an excellent time for the highest credit worthy applicants to lock in an incredibly low rate. A fixed rate mortgage at 2.75% would have been unimaginable for much of the history of mortgage lending," commented Nat Criss, Managing Partner of CMG Equities, LLC, which runs ForTheBestRate.com. "Even for those with some credit issues or less equity in their properties, pricing can still be very very low, and represent significant savings over loans taken out just a few years ago," he added.

The risk level of a loan is determined based on factors such as the credit score and history of the applicant, the percentage of the property's value that the loan makes up, and the potential borrowers' income, assets, and other debts.
