Mortgage Rate Update 11/14/08

Mortgage rates continued their downward slide this week as a result of dismal economic reports, particularly the half million jobs lost and an increase in the national deficit in October. There was a drop of an eighth of a point in almost all products, including the 30 year FHA and conforming loans. Jumbo loans and ARMs lost even more, down a full quarter point. However, CHFA rates rose a quarter point this week. Overall, the national average for the 30 year fixed rate mortgage fell to 6.14%, so our rates are still at a level below that average. Here are this week’s rates:
