According to Freddie Mac's latest Primary Mortgage Market Survey, the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 3.03 percent in the U.S., the lowest rate in the survey's history dating all the way back to 1971!
"The summer is heating up as record low mortgage rates continue to spur homebuyer demand," said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac's Chief Economist. "However, it remains to be seen whether the demand will continue if COVID cases rise to the point that it hinders economic growth."
