Will mortgage rates go down in August?
Mortgage rates have already fallen in August.
As of August 5, the average 30-year mortgage rate was back down to just 2.77% — the lowest level since February, according to Freddie Mac.
That’s a 25 basis point (0.25%) decrease from June’s peak, when the 30-year rate was averaging 3.02%.
And it’s almost half a point lower than this year’s high, which was 3.18% in March.
These near-record low rates can largely be attributed to the Delta variant. With coronavirus cases surging, there’s renewed uncertainty about where the U.S. economy is headed in the coming months.

Mortgage Brokers: What to Ask Before Using One
You’ve probably heard the term “mortgage broker” from your real estate agent or friends who’ve bought a home. But what exactly is a mortgage broker and what does one do that’s different from, say, a loan officer at a bank?
1. What is a mortgage broker?
A mortgage broker acts as a middleman between you and potential lenders. The broker’s job is to compare mortgage lenders on your behalf and find interest rates that fit your needs. Mortgage brokers have stables of lenders they work with, which can make your life easier.
How a mortgage broker can save you time and money
Buying a home is the biggest purchase most people will ever make. It can be the most nerve-wracking, too, because getting a mortgage and closing the loan can be a long, complicated process.
A mortgage broker can take the stress out of the mortgage process. From finding the best interest rate and lowest fees to completing the application and closing the loan on time, a mortgage broker is well-versed in the whole process. Working with a mortgage broker to navigate today’s market can be a wise move, especially for a first-time homebuyer
