Mortgage Rates still low

Mortgage rates
held at record lows this week as stocks rallied Friday on better than expected jobs numbers. The U.S. economy lost 54,000 jobs in August as census workers continued to exit payrolls, but the private sector added 67,000 jobs. A report released Thursday also showed consumer confidence is stabilizing after three straight months of declines.‬ ‪ ‬
‪Freddie Mac
reported the 30 year fixed mortgage averaged 4.32% this week, down from 4.36% last week. ‬
