I’m trying to buy a house right now, which has me fixated on mortgage rates. So I asked a colleague where I could find stats on average mortgage rates. She pointed me toward the websites of HSH Associates (http://www.hsh.com/mtghst.html), which is the source for the New York times chart above, and Freddie Mac (http://www.freddiemac.com/pmms/.)
You can see from the two charts below that the Wall Street Journal uses both sources.
The two sources conduct their own surveys, so their information won’t match, although they will show the same general trend. With mortgage rates scraping bottom, expect to see plenty of 30-year-rate charts in the news in coming months.
