If you’re in the market for a new home, the recent activity of long-term Treasury yields is cause for celebration. Though they may sound unrelated, long-term Treasury yields and the homebuying market have an important relationship – home loan rates often follow the trend of long-term notes, such as Treasury yields, according to a recent article from the Washington Post.
Since the yield on the 10-year Treasury bond plummeted almost 11 basis points recently, this means that mortgage rates also drastically declined – in fact, they fell to the lowest rates in over a year! These low rates translate to an excellent opportunity to a buy a new home for potential new homebuyers.
The 30-year fixed-rate average, 15-year fixed-rate average and five-year adjustable rate all registered sharp drops in April, which marks a new low for 2016 and indicates a strong housing market in the second quarter, according to the Washington Post article.
