Home shoppers and refinancers will be pushed along by record low mortgage interest rates, a trend that has helped the housing market start to recover this year.
According to Freddie Mac, the 30-year, fixed-rate average dipped to 3.34 percent, down from 3.40 a week ago and lower than the previous year-low bottom of 3.36 percent six weeks ago.
The average on the 15-year mortgage slipped to 2.65 percent, down from 2.69 percent last week and a tick below the former bottom of 2.66 percent reached four weeks ago.
