UPDATED! Please go here for updated mortgage rate trend charts (updated through May 2011)
Update: Please see this post for updated charts (through August 2008).
The 30 year mortgage rate monthly trend chart and post that was made here in September of 2006 continues to be one of the most frequented posts on this blog.
I’ve updated the 30 year fixed mortgage rate trend chart so that it now shows mortgage interest rates from April 1971 through December 2007.
In addition,historical rate trend charts for 15 year fixed mortgages, and 1 and 5 year ARMs (Adjustable Rate Mortgage) have been added.
Each chart plots the average monthly mortgage rate for the designated time period.
Data was supplied by FreddieMac and is believed to be accurate, but not guaranteed (naturally).
You are welcome to link to these charts, down load, or distribute them as long as the attribution remains intact (click on each chart for a larger image). If there is another way you’d like to see these plotted, give me a shout!
