Daily Real Estate News  |  July 17, 2009  |   Home Lending Rates Falling Again
Rates on 30-year fixed mortgages fell to 5.14 percent for the week ended July 16, down from 5.20 percent a week before and 6.26 percent a year earlier, Freddie Mac reports.

Interest on fixed home loans has fallen in four of the past five weeks, and Freddie Mac economist Frank Nothaft says rate activity during that time has lowered the monthly payment on a $200,000 loan by $56.

Here’s a look at how other mortgage rates performed this week:
  • 15-year fixed loans fell to 4.63 percent from 4.69 percent.
  • One-year adjustable-rate mortgages fell to 4.76 percent from 4.82 percent.
  • Five-year hybrid ARMs bumped up a notch to 4.83 percent from 4.82 percent.
