MCLEAN, Va., June 15, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) today released the results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey® (PMMS®), showing the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 6.69 percent.
“Mortgage rates decreased slightly this week in anticipation of the pause in rate hikes by the Federal Reserve," said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s Chief Economist. “As inflation continues to decelerate, economic growth is slowing and the tightening cycle of monetary policy is reaching its apex, which means mortgage rates are expected to decrease later this year and into next.”
- 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 6.69 percent as of June 15, 2023, down from last week when it averaged 6.71 percent. A year ago at this time, the 30-year FRM averaged 5.78 percent.
- 15-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 6.10 percent, up from last week when it averaged 6.07 percent. A year ago at this time, the 15-year FRM averaged 4.81 percent.
The PMMS® is focused on conventional, conforming, fully amortizing home purchase loans for borrowers who put 20 percent down and have excellent credit. For more information, view our Frequently Asked Questions.
