Freddie Mac PMMS: Mortgage mortgage rates recede this weekMortgagePress.comFreddie Mac, Primary Mortgage Market Survey, statistics, fixed-rate mortgage Freddie Mac has released the results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey (PMMS) in which the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 4.82 percent with an average 0.6 point for the week ending April 16, 2009, down from last week when it averaged 4.87 percent. Last year at this time, the 30-year FRM averaged 5.88 percent. The 15-year FRM this week averaged 4.48 percent with an average 0.6 point, down from last week when it averaged 4.54 percent. A year ago at this time, the 15-year FRM averaged 5.40 percent. This is the lowest the 15-year FRM has been since Freddie Mac began tracking it in August 1991. Five-year Treasury-indexed hybrid adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs) averaged 4.88 percent this week, with an average 0.6 point, down from last week when it averaged 4.93 percent. A year ago, the 5-year ARM averaged 5.48 percent. This is the lowest the 5-year ARM has been since Freddie Mac began tracking it in January 2005. One-year Treasury-indexed ARMs averaged 4.91 percent this week with an average 0.7 point, up from last week when it averaged 4.83 percent. At this time last year, the 1-year ARM averaged 5.10 percent. Average commitment rates should be reported along with average fees and points to reflect the total cost of obtaining the mortgage. "Mortgage rates on fixed-rate loans and some ARM products eased this week," said Frank Nothaft, Freddie Mac vice president and chief economist. "The housing industry is starting to exhibit some positive signs, albeit scarce and too early to tell how permanent. In its April 15th regional economic report, the Federal Reserve reported that better-than-expected buyer traffic led to a scattered pickup in home sales in a number of its Districts over the 6-week period ending on April 6th. Factors such as homebuyer tax credits, low mortgage rates, and more affordable prices were cited as leading to more potential buyers. This may have added to the rise in homebuilder confidence in April, which rose to the highest level in six months, according to the National Association of Home Builders. Moreover, confidence increased in each of the four regions, led by the Northeast and Midwest." For more information, visit www.freddiemac.com.
