Mortgage rates continued their downward trend, with the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaging 6.09% the week ending 2/2/23, according to Freddie Mac. Mortgage rates have declined steadily for the past 4 weeks and are now at their lowest level since their peak in November, when rates hit 7.08%. The drop in rates could save homebuyers hundreds of dollars on their monthly mortgage payments and may provide a boost in home sales ahead of the spring selling season.
