The Brexit effect may be waning already. Since last week’s news that Britain was leaving the European Union, lenders have been aggressively discounting their mortgage rates. Tuesday was a split decision. Some major banks have already begun marking up their loan terms, while others were still adjusting their rates downward. The result: Average rates are incrementally lower Tuesday on 30- and 15-year fixed loans, while up a notch for 5/1 ARMs.
However, this reverses a unanimous decision by lenders over the last two days to lower rates — and may signal the bottom for now.
The NerdWallet Mortgage Rate Index compiles annual percentage rates — lender interest rates plus fees — the most accurate way for consumers to compare rates. Here are Tuesday’s average rates for the most popular loan terms:
