Average mortgage rates moved lower again this week and are now just above record lows set in November of last year. The catalysts sending mortgage rates lower this week were a weaker than expected retail sales report and a lower reading on consumer sentiment. As a result of the week economic data released, bond yields moved lower which in turn is sending mortgage rates lower.

Average Mortgage Rates Move Lower Near Record LowsMortgage rates today on 30 year conforming mortgage loans are averaging 3.52 percent, a decline from last week's average 30 year mortgage rate of 3.57 percent. Late last month, average 30 year mortgage interest rates were almost 20 basis points higher at 3.70 percent. This coming week we could see average 30 year rates fall below 3.50 percent.
