30Y Mortgage Rate Sees Largest Drop Since 2008

US
  • The Freddie Mac 30Y fixed rate fell 40bps to 5.30% this week, marking a 51bp decline from the Jun 23 weak.
  • It comes with the sizeable rolling over in Treasury yields as growth fears have increased, and remains 220bp higher year to date.
  • Bloomberg reports: “While the drop provides minor relief to buyers, the housing market will continue to normalize if home-price growth materially slows due to the combination of low housing affordability and an expected economic slowdown,” said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s chief economist.
