Mortgage rates fall again

February 07 2008
Rates on 30-year mortgages dipped slightly this week, the fifth decline in the past six weeks. Freddie Mac, the mortgage company, reported Thursday that 30-year, fixed-rate mortgages averaged 5.67 percent this week, down from 5.68 percent last week. The 30-year mortgage
, which ended last year at 6.17 percent, has been below 6 percent for five weeks, a stretch that has not been seen since 2005. Analysts attributed the declines in mortgage rates to growing fears that the country could be slipping into a recession.
