According to Freddie Mac, the recent decrease in mortgage rates could increase the buyer pool for a $400,000 loan by nearly 3 million consumers. This will help rejuvenate the US housing market.

Despite the Fed’s hawkish tone last week, mortgage rates dropped when a 25 bp increase was announced. The market viewed this announcement favorably as it signalled that inflation is growing more slowly and the Fed is comfortable with the direction of the economy.

The US unemployment rate fell to the lowest level in 53 years. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the unemployment rate dropped to 3.4%. The US economy added 517,000 jobs, which topped Wall Street estimates across the board.
