Mortgage Rates Slightly Lower Despite Stronger Economic Data

Mortgage rates ended a 3-day losing streak, moving modestly lower today. This wasn’t the case in the morning, but several lenders released positively-revised rate sheets in the afternoon. As such, some lenders still have slightly higher rates compared to yesterday, but the average is slightly lower. This leaves 4.125% intact as the most prevalently-quoted conforming 30yr fixed rate for top tier borrowers. 4.25% is still common and 4.0% remains a bit of a stretch, but is available to some borrowers willing to pay the extra up front costs.
