Mortgage rates continue to inch up

MCLEAN, Va — Freddie Mac today released the results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey (PMMS), showing that the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 5.54%.

“The housing market remains sluggish as mortgage rates inch up for a second consecutive week,” said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s chief economist. “Consumer concerns about rising rates, inflation and a potential recession are manifesting in softening demand. As a result of these factors, we expect house price appreciation to moderate noticeably.”

30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 5.54% with an average 0.8 point as of July 21, 2022, up from last week when it averaged 5.51%. A year ago at this time, the 30-year FRM averaged 2.78%.
