Mortgage rates for the most popular home loan products changed little this week reports ForTheBestRate.com, a consumer focused mortgage research website. Pricing advertised in the rates tables on the website stayed relatively steady as mortgage banks and lenders saw little in the market influencing them to make drastic changes higher or lower to their offerings. On Thursday, March 7th, 2013 30 year fixed mortgage rates as low as 3.375% (APR: 3.375%, Points: 0.000, Fees in APR: $0, Lender: Pleasant Valley Home Mortgage) were posted.

Mortgage pricing data released Thursday, March 7th, 2013 in the weekly mortgage rate survey from Freddie Mac, a government sponsored enterprise and purchaser of mortgage loans on the secondary market, also revealed that mortgage pricing had dropped to historic levels. 30 year fixed rates averaged 3.52% (0.7 points) for the week ending March 7th, 2013, up just slightly from 3.51% (0.8 points,) the average one week earlier. 15 year mortgage rates also held steady, moving to 2.76% (0.7 points) on average, from last week's 2.76% (0.8 points) average.
