Freddie Mac: Sales Should Rise this Year

RealtorMag quotes Frank Northaft, chief economist at Freddie Mac, as saying, “”Mortgage rates ended the year hovering near historic lows in an already affordable housing market,” noting the 3.95 percent mortgage rate for the 30-year FRM. The rate only crossed the five percent line twice in 2011. He says a poll in December revealed five percent of the households in the U.S. plan to buy a house within the next six months, the highest number since May.
