U.S. rate on 30-year mortgage rises to 3.39 pct.
WASHINGTON – Average U.S. rates on fixed mortgages tick up from record lows last week. Cheaper mortgages are fueling a modest housing recovery that could help the broader economy.
Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday that the rate on the 30-year loan increased to 3.39 percent from 3.36 percent. The previous week's rate was the lowest since long-term mortgages began in the 1950s.
The average on the 15-year fixed mortgage edged up to 2.70 percent, from last week's record low of 2.69 percent.
