Weekly Market Report

For Week Ending March 14, 2020

After hitting a record low last week, rates on 30-year fixed-rate mortgages rose slightly this week according to Freddie Mac. A combination of an increase in rates in the bond market and high demand for refinancing and purchase mortgages contributed to the uptick. Meanwhile, the continued spread of COVID-19 is leading many companies and consumers to change their daily activities.
