US rate on 30-year mortgage hits record 3.83 pct.
Average US rate on 30-year fixed mortgage hits record low of 3.83 percent; 15-year also record
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' Average U.S. rates for 30-year and 15-year fixed mortgages fell to fresh record lows this week, making home-buying and refinancing more affordable than ever for those who can qualify.

Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac says the rate on the 30-year loan ticked down to 3.83 percent. That's the lowest since long-term mortgages began in the 1950s and below the previous record rate of 3.84 percent reached last week.

The 15-year mortgage, a popular option for refinancing, dropped to 3.05 percent, also a record. That's down from last week's previous record of 3.07 percent.



Cheaper mortgage rates haven't done much to boost home sales. Rates have been below 4 percent for all but one week since early December. Yet sales of both previously occupied homes and new homes fell in March.
