Sample article from our Housing & Economy

MCLEAN, Virginia , March 10, 2022 (press release) –

Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) today released the results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey® (PMMS®), showing that the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 3.85 percent.

“Following two weeks of declines, mortgage rates rose this week as U.S. Treasury yields increased,” said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s Chief Economist. “Over the long-term, we expect rates to continue to rise as inflation broadens and shortages increasingly impact many segments of the economy. However, uncertainty about the war in Ukraine is driving rate volatility that likely will continue in the short-term.”
