Mortgage rates dropped for the third week in a row after rising significantly after President-elect Donald Trump won the election, however, the 10-year Treasury did see an increase.
“After trending down for most of the week, the 10-year Treasury yield rose following the release of the CPI report,” Freddie Mac Chief Economist Sean Becketti said.
The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage decreased yet again to 4.09 percent for the week ending Jan. 19, 2017. This is down from last week’s 4.12 percent but still up from last year’s 3.81 percent.
The 15-year FRM decreased from last week’s 3.37 percent to 3.34 percent this week. This is still up from last year’s 3.1 percent.
