The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage sunk to a 3.89 percent average this week, its lowest level since May 30, 2013. That translates to more mortgage savings for home buyers and refinancers.

Freddie Mac reports the following national averages with mortgage rates for the week ending Dec. 4:

  • 30-year fixed-rate mortgages: averaged 3.89 percent, with an average 0.5 point, dropping from last week’s 3.97 percent average. Last year at this time, 30-year rates averaged 4.46 percent.
  • 15-year fixed-rate mortgages: averaged 3.10 percent, with an average 0.5 point, dropping from last week’s 3.17 percent average. A year ago, 15-year rates averaged 3.47 percent.
  • 5-year hybrid adjustable-rate mortgages: averaged 2.94 percent, with an average 0.5 point, dropping from last week’s 3.01 percent average. Last year at this time, 5-year ARMs averaged 2.99 percent.

If you’ve been waiting for lower rates, now may be the time to make your move.  Rates are anticipated to rise into and through 2015.
