From Matthew Graham at Mortgage News Daily: Mortgage Rates Officially Hit New Multi-Decade HighsFor the average lender, a top tier 30yr fixed rate is now over 7.5% for the first time in at least 22 years. The average borrower (not “top tier”) is seeing rates that are even higher. This assumes an adjustment for discount points. Many loans are being quoted with points currently, and in those cases, the note rate would be a bit lower. [30 year fixed 7.51%]
