15-year fixed-rate mortgages averaged 3.16 percent, with an average 0.5 point, dropping from last week’s 3.19 percent average. A year ago, 15-year rates averaged 2.87 percent.
5-year hybrid adjustable-rate mortgages averaged 3.11 percent, with an average 0.5 point, holding the same average as last week. A year ago, 5-year ARMs averaged 2.82 percent.
