30-Year Mortgage Rate Reaches Lowest Level Ever: 2.98%
The average rate on a 30-year fixed mortgage fell to its lowest level in almost 50 years of record keeping. In a year of financial firsts, this one stands out: Mortgage rates have fallen below the 3% mark. It is the third consecutive week and the seventh time this year that rates on America’s most popular home loan have hit a fresh low.

Hugo’s Opinion; The bottom line:
The current low rate environment is like nothing we’ve ever seen before. It’s easy to tune out the constant advertisements and news stories about “all-time low rates,” but this time around, the refinance process is very much worth investigating right now.
