On the radar: Freddie Mac down again in November 7 data after FOMC rate cut in prior week

Freddie Mac mortgage interest rates declined across-the-board as of the November 7 week data after the FOMC cut short-term rates for a third time on October 30.

The 30-year fixed rate fell 9 basis points to 3.69%, ending the upward movement in recent weeks. The rate was the same as the 3.69% average for all of October and hints that rates have stabilized at a comfortable level, if not quite so low as those seen in August and September.

The 15-year fixed rate was down 6 basis points to 3.13% as of November 7, and was similar to the 3.14% October average.

The 5/1-year ARM rate was down 4 basis points to 3.39%, just above the 3.38% average for October.

Rates are hovering right around three-year lows and remain at levels tempting for potential homebuyers.
