Mortgage Interest Rates Drop
Last week after the FED announced they would purchase $600 Billion of Mortgage-Backed securities backed by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Ginnie Mae, the mortgage interest rates dropped.
The move by the FED was designed to help increase the availability of credit while lowering the interest rate. And it certainly has lowered the interest rate. Not just by a fraction but by 1% from 6.5% to 5.5%.
