Mortgage ratesÃ‚Â moved lowerÃ‚Â for a 2nd straight day. Ã‚Â This helps undo virtually all of the damage done by the first 3 days of the week. Ã‚Â In other words, today’s rates are right in line with last Friday’s after having been noticeably higher for the past 4 days. Ã‚Â There were no significant economic reports or market-moving headlines today as markets were instead focused on limiting their exposure to volatility over the upcoming 3-day weekend. Ã‚Â On that note, keep in mind that banks and most mortgage lenders will be closed on Monday for the Presidents Day holiday.
