McLEAN, Va. – May 7, 2010 – Rates for 30-year fixed mortgages have fallen to their lowest level in six weeks, Freddie Mac said Thursday.

Rates dropped to a record low of 4.71 percent in December, pushed down by a campaign by the Federal Reserve to reduce borrowing costs for consumers.

The program ended at the end of March, but the Fed left the door open to reviving the program if the economy weakens.

The last time rates for 30-year fixed mortgages averaged less than 5 percent was the week of March 25, when they were 4.99 percent.

Freddie Mac collects mortgage rates on Monday through Wednesday of each week from lenders around the country. Rates often fluctuate significantly, even within a given day, often tracking the interest rate paid on long-term Treasury bonds.
This week, the average rate on a 15-year fixed-rate mortgage was 4.36 percent, down from last week when it averaged 4.39 percent.
Rates on five-year, adjustable-rate mortgages averaged 3.97 percent, down from 4 percent a week earlier. Rates on one-year, adjustable-rate mortgages dipped to 4.07 percent from 4.25 percent.
The rates do not include add-on fees known as points. One point is equal to 1 percent of the total loan amount.
The nationwide fee for loans in Freddie Mac’s survey averaged 0.7 of a point for 30-year, 15-year, and 5-year loans, and 0.6 of a point for 1-year loans.
