WASHINGTON — Long-term mortgage rates are unchanged this week: The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage remained at 3.83 percent; the 15-year home loan, popular among homeowners who refinance their mortgages, stayed at 3.13 percent, mortgage buyer Freddie Mac says.
Rates on long-term home loans typically track the yield on 10-year Treasury notes, which barely budged this week.
Two weeks ago, the 30-year mortgage hit a low for the year before bouncing back up last week. So far this year, the 30-year rate is running above last year’s average of 3.65 percent.
Freddie Mac says the rate on adjustable five-year mortgages blipped up to 3.20 percent from 3.17 percent.
