MCLEAN, Va., June 11, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) today released the results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey® (PMMS®), showing that the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 3.21 percent.
“The rebound in homebuyer demand continued this week, driven by mortgage rates that hover near record lows,” said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s Chief Economist. “This turnaround in demand, particularly by those who have higher incomes than the typical household, also reflects deferred sales from the Spring.”
- 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 3.21 percent with an average 0.9 point for the week ending June 11, 2020, up slightly from last week when it averaged 3.18 percent. A year ago at this time, the 30-year FRM averaged 3.82 percent.
- 15-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 2.62 percent with an average 0.8 point, unchanged from last week. A year ago at this time, the 15-year FRM averaged 3.26 percent.
- 5-year Treasury-indexed hybrid adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) averaged 3.10 percent with an average 0.4 point, unchanged from last week. A year ago at this time, the 5-year ARM averaged 3.51 percent.
