FREDDIE MAC: Fixed Mortgage Rates Increase on Soft Housing Data
"Mortgage rates edged up following the uptick in the 10-year Treasury note late last week," said Frank Nothaft, Freddie's vice president and chief economist. "Existing home sales were essentially flat with a 0.2 percent decline in March to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.59 million. However, new home sales fell nearly 15 percent in March to an annual rate of 384,000, well below consensus."

- 15-year FRM this week averaged 3.39 percent with an average 0.6 point, up from last week when it averaged 3.33 percent. A year ago at this time, the 15-year FRM averaged 2.61 percent.
