According to Freddie Mac’s latest Primary Mortgage Market Survey, the U.S. 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 3.13 percent on June 25, 2020.
“After the Great Recession, it took more than ten years for purchase demand to rebound to pre-recession levels, but in this crisis, it took less than ten weeks,” said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s Chief Economist. “The rebound in purchase demand partly reflects deferred sales as well as continued interest from prospective buyers looking to take advantage of the low mortgage rate environment.”
