Mortgage Rates Flat as Affordability Concerns Grow

Mortgage rates were basically flat this week, with the average rate for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage at 3.18%, up slightly from 3.17% last week, according to Freddie Mac’s Primary Mortgage Market Survey.

A year ago, the average rate for a 30-year was 3.33%.

“Although mortgage rates remain low, we are beginning to see a pullback by those looking to enter the housing market,” says Sam Khater, chief economist for Freddie Mac, in a statement.
