Mortgage Rates In a Minute

November 27th, 2017

Mortgage rates were largely unchanged this week as job growth continues to help more people buy new and existing homes.

The average for the benchmark 30-year fixed-rate mortgage increased just 1 basis point, or 0.01 percent, from the previous week.

That's good news for potential homebuyers who were waiting on the sidelines after rates jumped last week. With solid job growth lately, more people are able to get a mortgage or refinance their home.

Job growth "is starting to slowly push up wages, which is in turn giving households added assurance that now is a good time to buy a home," says Lawrence Yun, chief economist at the National Association of Realtors.
