Mortgage Rates for the Weekend – HAPPY EASTER to ALL

Mortgage rates rose this week as the Fed ended the mortgage backed securities purchase program Wednesday, and the Dow approached the 11,000 mark. Freddie Mac reported that the 30 year fixed rate averaged 5.08%, up from 4.99% a week ago, its highest level since the first week of 2010. Long-term interest rates across the board rose higher due to concerns about inflation as the economy improves and without the Fed there to act as a buffer and keep rates in check.***Good news for buyers eager to ensure they have the best terms on their financing:


Prosperity will match or beat any bona fide offer from a local lender – or provide the buyer with a $50 Home Depot gift card. If you are interested, we can also offer no closing cost options as well.
