(Best Syndication News) Mortgage interest rates continued to fall today with benchmarks leading the way (see charts below).

Benchmarks

Rates in the United States are tied to various benchmarks including the 10-year note, the prime rate, and the 6-month LIBOR rate (see benchmark chart below).

Both the 6-month London Inter-Bank Offered Rate (LIBOR) fell 0.43 percent. The 10-year note yield fell 0.63 percent. Over the last five business days the 10-year not was one basis point higher. The prime rate remained 3.25 percent today.

30-Year Fixed Mortgage Rate

The average 30-year fixed rate mortgage (FRM) fell three basis points to 4.607 percent Monday. Over the last five-days the rate is two points higher.

Citibank lowered their rate 13 basis points to 4.65 percent.

SunTrust lowered their loans 12 points to 4.65 percent. The bank also offers 30-year FHA financing. That loan was four points lower to 5.02 percent.

These bank rates will depend on the borrower’s credit history and the location of the home. The bank will also consider the equity position for both a refinance and purchase loans.
