Mortgage Rates Have Dropped

Mortgage rates have dipped in the past few weeks to an average low of 6.21% for a 30-year fixed mortgage. The current average rate for a 15-year fixed mortgage is even lower at 5.80%, while the rate for a 5/1 adjustable rate mortgage is 5.69%. Compared to the middle of last month, when the rate for a 30-year fixed was around 6.41%, this lower rate means a savings of $31 each month, or $375 each year, in monthly payments on a $240,000 mortgage.
