MCLEAN, VA--(Marketwired - Apr 13, 2017) - Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) today released the results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey® (PMMS®), showing the 30-year mortgage rate dropping for the fourth consecutive week and hitting a new low for 2017.
Average commitment rates should be reported along with average fees and points to reflect the total upfront cost of obtaining the mortgage. Visit the following link for the Definitions. Borrowers may still pay closing costs which are not included in the survey.

"Following a weak March jobs report, the 10-year Treasury yield dropped about 5 basis points. The 30-year mortgage rate fell 2 basis points to 4.08 percent. Not only did the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage decline for the fourth consecutive week in our survey, it also fell to a new 2017 low."
