Rates Continue to Slide This Week

Freddie Mac reports the following national averages with mortgage rates for the week ending July 12:

“This positive trend, along with these lower mortgage rates, should increasingly give some previously priced-out prospective home buyers the financial wherewithal to resume their home search.”
