Attributed to Frank Nothaft, vice president and chief economist, Freddie Mac:

“Following the Federal Reserve’s announcement of a new bond purchase plan, yields on mortgage-backed securities fell bringing average fixed mortgage rates to their all-time record lows which should aid in the ongoing housing recovery. New construction on one-family homes rebounded in August, rising by 5.5 percent to the fastest pace since April 2010. In addition, existing home sales increased by 7.8 percent in August to its strongest pace since May 2010.”   Original Source: Freddie Mac Interest rates listed above are national averages as reported by Freddie Mac.
