Mortgage Rates Continue to Decline: 30 Year Mortgage Rates at 4.81%, 15 year Mortgage Rates at 4.28%

Mortgage rates continued to drift down this week over last. 30 year mortgage rates and 15 year mortgage rates have hit new lows for 2010. Today's 30 year mortgage rates are now averaging 4.81 percent, down from last week’s 30 year mortgage rate of 4.90 percent.

The most recent factor driving mortgage rates lower are the problems in Europe.  The problems started with Greece government debt, a decline in the euro and now European bank concerns. As the issues mount in Europe, investors have been buying U.S. Treasuries driving 10 year yields down to 3.15 percent. Lower Treasury yields drive mortgage rates lower.
