The possibilities of grabbing a mortgage with loan rate below 5% have increased in the past few weeks and this is a great sign for homebuyers. 6 consecutive weeks registered a fall in the rates of home mortgages. According to the report of Freddie Mac, the rate of 30 years fixed loan dipped down to 4.87% on the week ending on 7th October, Thursday. This is the lowest to be registered since the month of May. The week before that registered a rate of 4.94%.

10 year note's field is the benchmark that influences the 30 years fixed loan rate. The benchmark moves in a direction which is opposite to its prices. The prices for the Treasury went up last week as the auctions with worth over $78 billion, received demands which are above average.

Investors have started questioning the sustainability and the strength of economic rebound. Because of the uncertainty, the investors are moving back to the safety grounds laid down by the government and the bonds which are backed by mortgages. There has been no control over the falling mortgage rates even after the government debts went through substantial auction.

Refinancing abounded with the fall in mortgage rates but the benefits started wearing off as the summer marked the tearing off of the rates. The month of June saw the steady increase in the benchmark (10-year bond's yield) to around 4%. As far as the current situation is concerned, the Central Bank only has a reserve of $15 billion that it can spend on buyback program. It is because of this that the investors are worried and they think that they can face a soaring up of the yields once again.

As far as the homebuyers are concerned, they have benefited from both the tax credits and the low mortgage rates. Though bad for the people who have lost their homes to foreclosure, it is good for those who are looking to invest in repossessed properties.
