30 year fixed rate near 5%
Conforming rates for a 30 year fixed were at 5.375% with zero points on Friday. This is a payment of $5.60 per $1,000 borrowed. If you pay one point, then your rate is 4.875% or a payment of $5.29 per $1,000 borrowed. This is a great time to refinance into a historically low rate.
