Mortgage Interest Rates Continued Downward Trend This Week.

Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) today released the results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey® (PMMS®) for the week ending 01.26.2023, showing the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 6.13 percent.

“Mortgage rates continue to tick down and, as a result, home purchase demand is thawing from the months-long freeze that gripped the housing market,” said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s Chief Economist. “Potential homebuyers remain sensitive to changes in mortgage rates, but ample demand remains, fueled by first-time homebuyers.”

  • 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 6.13 percent as of January 26, 2023, down from last week when it averaged 6.15 percent. A year ago at this time, the 30-year FRM averaged 3.55 percent.
  • 15-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 5.17 percent, down from last week when it averaged 5.28 percent. A year ago at this time, the 15-year FRM averaged 2.80 percent.

The PMMS® is focused on conventional, conforming, fully amortizing home purchase loans for borrowers who put 20 percent down and have excellent credit.
