Today's Mortgage Rates
Modest Improvements For Mortgage Rates
Apr 17 2018, 4:07PM

Mortgage rates had a calm day.  Lenders who had offered improved rate sheets yesterday afternoon didn't see much reason to drop rates any further today.  Lenders who took a more conservative route yesterday ended up being a little better off.  Although there were several economic reports this morning, bonds (which drive rates) did nothing to respond and have generally been uninspired so far this week. 

In fact, in a broader sense, bonds haven't exhibited much inspiration for more than a month.  Although rates have descended modestly since late February, it's just as fair to label that movement as "flat" in the context of typical rate movement.  For example, most borrowers would still be quoted the same "note rate," with the only difference being slight changes in upfront fees/points.
