Due to the recent government shut down the mortgage industry has seen some changes, added with weak job numbers as a result of the shutdown, fixed mortgage rates are now at a four month low.
In July of this year we saw interest rates begin to rise with 30-year fixed rate mortgages go from 3.93% to 4.46%. This was the largest jump in interest rates at one given time since 1987. Now, since the shut down, we have seen rates drop from 4.28% to 4.13%. This is still quite a bit higher then last year, which was 3.41%, yet the rates are still low and affordable for many of us looking to purchase a new home.
