An interesting article ran in the Houston Chronicle today regarding mortgage rates. It noted that the average rate on a 30-year fixed rate mortgage "dipped to 4.93 percent this week from 5 percent a week earlier" becoming "the lowest level since mid-December when rates averaged 4.81 percent." On a 15-year fixed rate mortgage, the average rate was 4.3 percent, down from 4.36 percent last week!
