Average Mortgage Rates Near Record Lows on Brexit

As we expected, average mortgage rates are down again this week and are just above record lows set in 2012. The catalyst for sending mortgage rates near record lows was the Brexit vote to leave the European Union. Just after the vote, we wrote an article entitled Brexit Will Send U.S. Mortgage Rates to New Lows, predicting mortgage rates will head down to all-time lows on the vote and we are just about there.

Average 30 year mortgage rates were at 3.55 percent right after the vote and are now at 3.44 percent. The all-time record low for average 30 year mortgage rates is 3.31 percent set in the fourth quarter of 2012. You can already find lenders quoting 30 year rates with points below the all-time low of 3.31 percent below and lower than today's average of 3.44 percent and below.

The lowest 30 year refinance rates for California is from Sebonic Financial at 2.875 percent with 1.10 mortgage points. The lowest quoted rate without points on our rate list for CA is at 3.25 percent, still below the current average rate and below all-time record low of 3.31 percent.

Average 15 year mortgage rates are down considerably since the Brexit vote. The current average 15 year mortgage rate is at 2.68 percent, down 8 basis points from last week's average rate of 2.76 percent. As with 30 year rates, lenders are quoting 15 year mortgage rates well below the current average rate.

Sebonic Financial is also offering the lowest 15 year rates. This lender is currently quoting 15 year refinance rates at 2.125 percent with 1.10 points. Sebonic Financial is also offering 15 year rates at 2.25 percent with 0.10 points and at 2.50 percent with no points.
