Fixed Mortgage Rates Drop to Four-Month Low

ratesFreddie Mac released the results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey® (PMMS®), showing average fixed mortgage rates hitting their lowest levels since this summer amid market speculation that the Federal Reserve will not alter its bond buying purchases this year.

Findings

• 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 4.13 percent with an average 0.8 point for the week ending October 24, 2013, down from last week when it averaged 4.28 percent. A year ago at this time, the 30-year FRM averaged 3.41 percent.

• 15-year FRM this week averaged 3.24 percent with an average 0.6 point, down from last week when it averaged 3.33 percent. A year ago at this time, the 15-year FRM averaged 2.72 percent.

• 5-year Treasury-indexed hybrid adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) averaged 3.00 percent this week with an average 0.4 point, down from last week when it averaged 3.07 percent. A year ago, the 5-year ARM averaged 2.75 percent.

• 1-year Treasury-indexed ARM averaged 2.60 percent this week with an average 0.5 point, down from last week when it averaged 2.63 percent. At this time last year, the 1-year ARM averaged 2.59 percent.

“Mortgage rates slid this week as the partial government shutdown led to market speculation that the Federal Reserve will not alter its bond purchases this year. The weak employment report for September added to this expectation,” says Frank Nothaft, vice president and chief economist, Freddie Mac. “The economy added just 148,000 jobs, which was below the market consensus forecast and less than the 193,000 jobs increase in August.”

What to Know About Buying in the Fall

Fall Home

The fall often calls for a slowdown from the bustling Summer home buying season. However, due to affordable interest rates and home prices, this fall is proving to be a busier buying time than the falls that have come before. Here are a a few tips for buying a home in the fall:

Check up on homes you liked this summer. Remember that gorgeous home with the wrap-around porch you fell in love with in June, but passed on because it was a bit out of your price range? Check back. If it’s still on the market, it may have dropped in price, and even if it hasn’t, offering a little less than asking price may be a good idea if the seller is trying to close before winter.

Buy a home that needs a little TLC. In the fall, not only are homes cheaper, but building materials are, too. Home improvement stores typically have huge fall sales now that the prime building season (looking at you, summer) is over. So if you are unsure about a home because it needs a renovated kitchen or bathroom, you may be able to swing it if you make good use of the season’s discounts.

Take advantage of more selection. While many areas around the country are experiencing a shortage in listing, the fall will offer more selection than the summer or spring. Use this to your advantage by shopping around and comparing prices.

Don’t rush. Just as sellers are looking to sell their properties before winter, you may be feeling rushed to purchase one before the holidays start rolling in. Take your time and make intelligent buying decisions – you want a home you can enjoy for years to come, so don’t allow the changing seasons to pressure you.
