Washington - Arabstoday

The average rate on the 30-year fixed mortgage held steady at a record low for a third straight week, offering more incentive to those looking to buy a home or refinance. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday that the rate on the 30-year home loan was unchanged at 3.87 percent. That\'s the lowest level since long-term mortgages began in the 1950s. The average on the 15-year fixed mortgage was also unchanged at 3.16 percent. That\'s up from a record low of 3.14 percent reached two weeks ago. The low rates have done little to boost the struggling housing market. Rates have been below 5 percent for all but two weeks in the past year. Yet few people can qualify for the rates and many of those who can have already done so. And prospective buyers don\'t want to put money into a home that they fear could fall in price over the next few years. Sales of previously occupied homes were dismal last year. New-home sales in 2011 were the worst on records going back half a century. Builders are hopeful that the low rates could boost sales this year. But so far, they have had a minimal impact. Frank Nothaft, Freddie Mac\'s chief economist, said mixed readings on consumer confidence underscore the fragile condition of the housing market. Surveys of small business owner and homebuilder confidence rose in January and February, respectively. But the University of Michigan\'s consumer sentiment fell in February, breaking a five-month upward trend. To calculate the average rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country Monday through Wednesday of each week. Advertise | AdChoices The average rates don\'t include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for the 30-year loan was unchanged at 0.8; the average on the 15-year fixed mortgage rose to 0.8 from 0.7. For the five-year adjustable loan, the average rate fell to 2.82 percent from 2.83 percent, and the average fee rose to 0.8 from 0.7. The average on the one-year adjustable loan rose to 2.84 percent from 2.78 percent, and the average fee was unchanged at 0.6.
