The national average 30-year fixed home mortgage rate fell to 3.36 percent last week. The number matches the record low reached in December 2012, according to Bankrate.com. It is down seven points from the last week in July. With a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage of 3.36%, a homeowner would pay approximately $441 per month in principal and interest for every $100,000 borrowed.
Financial experts believe low mortgage rates mean that now is the best time to re-finance. Many homeowners and homebuyers have both benefited from the drop in mortgage rates, according to Bloomberg.com.
The average 15-year fixed-rate mortgage is down four points from the previous week at 2.65%. With shorter-term loans such as 15-years, homebuyers pay more per month but save thousands of dollars in the long run.
