Mortgage Rates Hit Another Record Low

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) -- The average fixed mortgage rates reached all-time record lows again following June’s poor unemployment report.

Freddie Mac reported the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage fell to 3.56 percent for the week ending July 12, from last week when it averaged 3.62 percent and a year ago when it was 4.51 percent. The 15-year rate averaged 2.86 percent, down from 2.89 percent last week and 3.65 percent one year ago.

Both averages were all-time record lows, according to the government-created mortgage financing agency.

The average 30-year fixed rate has been under 4 percent for 16 weeks and the average 15-year rate has been below 3 percent for seven weeks.
