Housing Interest Rates

August 16, 1992 to Present

See above for Interest Rates from June 1935 to August 12, 1992

(30 Year • Fixed Rate • Owner-Occupied • Conforming Loan)

The following interest rate record begins where the VA's nearly 50 year record of mandated interest rates abruptly stops (see the VA chart above). Hopefully this record will be comparable to the VA's in that it reflects the prevailing interest rate charged by Countrywide Funding, one of the largest, national, residential loan originators in the United States. This chart's frequency is based on a four week cycle (13 times per year). These published rates might be slightly higher than actual rates since they do not reflect local "marketing adjustments". However, they're closely representative of the market because of Countrywide's competitive dominance. To keep your chart up to date call your local Countrywide branch or look up their fixed rate loan quote in your local Sunday newspaper every four weeks. If you strike out with those local sources then call the Mortgage News Company in Orange County at (714) 836-1177 or give us a call in San Diego (619) 283-5444.
