Current mortgage rates - October 2, 2014

 
Mortgage rates are back to their falling ways. According to the latest Mortgage Rates Radar, a Wednesday-to-Tuesday wraparound weekly survey of mortgage rates, both the 30-year and 5/1 ARM rates fell during the week ending September 30. The average rate for conforming 30-year fixed-rate mortgages declined by 0.04% to 4.24%. Conforming 5/1 Hybrid ARM rates decreased by just 0.01%, ending the survey week at 3.23%. While mortgage rates should remain low for the next few months, rate volatility will increase as the Fed’s QE program comes to an end.
