The 30-year fixed rate mortgage dropped to 3.92% for the week ending November 22, 2017. This is down from last week’s 3.95% and down, for the first time in 2017, from last year’s level of 4.03%.

However, the 15-year FRM increased slightly from 3.31% last week to 3.32% this week, and remains above last year’s 3.25%.

The five-year Treasury-indexed hybrid adjustable-rate mortgage increased slightly as well, climbing to 3.22%. This is up from 3.21% last week and from 3.12% last year.

“The 10-year Treasury yield fell roughly four basis points, while the 30-year mortgage rate dropped three basis points to 3.92%,” Becketti said. “Mortgage rates continue to remain low.”
