Current Market Rates

The average 30-year and 15-year mortgage rates and the 10-Year Treasury Note rate decreased slightly in the week ending November 2, 2012. The 91-day Treasury Bill rate increased. The difference between the 30-year mortgage rate and the 10-Year Treasury Note rate remained level at 1.57%. This is 0.17% above the historical spread, indicating homebuyers are still overpaying for loans.

The rates used to set adjustable rate mortgages (ARMs) showed mixed signals in September 2012. The 6-Month Treasury Bill and the Treasury Securities Yield remained level, the 12-Month Treasury Average increased and the London Inter-Bank Offered Rate (Libor) decreased. Rate changes in October will indicate if ARMs rates have finally reached their bottom after dropping for over a year.
