Rates continue to fall


Mortgage rates once again hit record lows this week according to data from Freddie Mac. That marks the third straight week of record lows. Despite positive economic news here in the US that industrial production was up and consumer sentiment hit its highest level scince 2008, the Treasury bond market continued to show strength. The turmoil in Europe continued to overshadow positive data at home. The low interest rates are encouraging demand and applications for mortgages were up 9.2% last week.
