Mortgage interest rates unchanged

Bankrate.com reports that for the week ending September 14, interest rates remain virtually unchanged.

The site reports that "The average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage increased from 5.8 percent to 5.84 percent, and the average 15-year fixed mortgage rate increased by a similar amount, rising from 5.39 percent to 5.44 percent. The average jumbo 30-year fixed rate climbed above the 6 percent barrier to 6.02 percent from 5.97 percent last week."

It will be interesting to follow the impact that Hurricane Katrina may/will have on interest rates. Stay tuned for that analysis!

The Federal Open Market Committee meets again September 20.
