Mortgage rates continue to decline in 2016, hitting another new low for the year. Average 30 year mortgage rates fell to 3.36 percent this week, down from last week's average 30 year mortgage rate of 3.43 percent. 30 year rates are now only 5 basis points higher than the all-time record low of 3.31 percent set in late 2012.

The latest data forcing mortgage rates lower was the advance 2nd quarter GDP estimate released last Friday. Analyst forecasts for 2nd quarter GDP was 2.4 percent but the actually number came in much lower at 1.2 percent. The news forced 10 year U.S. bond yields back below 1.50 percent. Lenders set mortgage rates based on 10 year bond yields so as bond yields decline, mortgage rates follow suit.
