Current Mortgage Rates: June 22, 2009

Mortgage rates retreated from their recent highs this week, brought on by lower inflation data and lower U.S. Treasury prices. Current mortgage rates were down almost across the board on all mortgage products compared to the prior week.

Current Mortgage Rates: June 22, 2009



Shorter term mortgage rates were down more than longer term rates.  Shorter term jumbo adjustable rate mortgages were down the most, probably because of an easing of the credit crises that started last fall. Banks are getting more comfortable lending funds to each other, London Interbank Offered Rates are down on all maturities. The spread between the three month LIBOR and the Fed's overnight rate, a gauge of how banks assess risk lending to each other is down to a level seen before the crises.
