Home mortgage rates drop again

    131003102952-30-year-mortgage-620xavia CNN Money
The average interest rate for the most popular kind of home loan, the 30-year fixed rate, fell to 4.22%, down from 4.32% a week earlier.

Rates, as measured by a weekly Freddie Mac survey, have dropped from 4.57% since the Federal Reserve unexpectedly announced three weeks ago that it would not alter its stimulus program of buying Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities.

Most industry experts had thought the Fed would start to taper off those purchases, which bring liquidity to the mortgage markets and help keep rates low.

The rate decline can also be traced to economic uncertainty, which has heightened due to the government shutdown, according to Frank Nothaft, Freddie’s chief economist.

“With the onset of the federal government shutdown and declining consumer confidence, fixed mortgage rates fell for the third consecutive week,” he said.

For borrowers applying for $200,000 loans, the rate decline over the past three weeks could save them about $42 a month, $500 a year — if they can get a mortgage.

    Hi there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering
    if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to
    get advice from someone with experience. Any help would
    be enormously appreciated!
