Mortgage Rates Continue to Fall Reaching New 2011 Lows

Once again mortgage rates have fallen slightly when compared to the previous week, dropping to the lowest point of 2011.

Wilmington, NC, May 30, 2011 -- Once again mortgage rates have fallen slightly when compared to the previous week, dropping to the lowest point of 2011., a popular mortgage rate research website, reports that rates advertised in the rate tables displayed on the site have continued to move lower over the past few weeks, with current thirty year fixed rates as low as 4.375% (4.459% APR, Lender: available.

The recently released Weekly Primary Mortgage Market Survey® from Freddie Mac, a government sponsored enterprise that purchases residential mortgage loans in the secondary market, confirms the trend of falling mortgage rates. According to the survey the average interest rate for a 30 year fixed rate loan over the past week was 4.60% with 0.7% in fees and points, down slightly from the average of 4.61% with 0.7% in fees and points from the previous week. 15 year fixed loans saw a similar change from 3.80% to 3.78% both with 0.7% in fees and points.

The last time rates were lower than their current point was in December 2010.

Shaun Hamman, VP of the Residential Lending Division of American Financial Resources, noted that "the current rate environment has created a flurry of refinance activity over the past month. We've definitely experienced an uptick in applications. People who have been sitting on the sidelines since the end of 2010 appear to have renewed interest." American Financial Resources, a New Jersey based national lender, offers a wide variety of financing solutions including FHA loans, conventional fixed and adjustable rate mortgages, non-conforming jumbo mortgages, and mobile home loans. Hamman continued, "It's a great time to be in a position to refinance or buy a home. Mortgage rates are at or near 2011 lows for most products."
