Freddie Mac's (OTCQB: FMCC) weekly reported Thursday that mortgage rates held steady after declining for three consecutive weeks.
Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s chief economist, said, “Mortgage rates remained mostly unchanged this week, while mortgage applications rose 5.3% from the previous week. The general decline in rates we have seen recently, combined with rebounding pending home sales, hint at a strong spring home buying season.”
