The 30-year fixed rate mortgage dropped to 3.47% for the week ending October 27, 2016. This is down from last week’s 3.52% and last year’s 3.76%.

The 15-year FRM decreased slightly from last week’s 2.79% and last year’s 3.76% to 2.78% this week.

The five-year Treasury-indexed hybrid adjustable-rate mortgage decreased slightly to 2.84% from 2.85%. It is down from last year’s 2.89%.

“The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage fell five basis points week-over- week to 3.47%, erasing last week’s increase,” Becketti said. “At the same time, the 10-year Treasury yield ended the week relatively flat – up about two basis points.”
