According to the data collected on April 26, 2010, for LendingTree’s Weekly Mortgage Rate Pulse, average home loan rates offered by network lenders was 4.97 percent (5.19% APR) for 30-year fixed mortgages, which is down from 5.00 percent from the previous week, 4.15 percent (4.49% APR) for 15-year fixed mortgages, which is down from 4.20 percent reported in the previous week, and 3.59 percent (3.61% APR) for 5/1 adjustable rate mortgages (ARM), which was also down from 3.60 percent reported in the previous weeks survey.

The lowest mortgage rates offered on the same day by lenders on the LendingTree network were 4.625 percent (4.76% APR) for a 30-year fixed mortgage, which was the same rate offered the previous week, 3.75 percent (3.99% APR) for a 15-year fixed mortgage, which was the same rate offered the previous week, and 3.00 percent (3.21% APR) for a 5/1 ARM, which was also the same rate offered last week.

“Home affordability continues to break new records,” said Cameron Findlay, LendingTree Chief Economist. “The latest Case-Shiller numbers showing further home price declines, combined with consistently low mortgage rates translate to a favorable environment for homebuyers. The concern moving forward Is that this environment may not last long, as evidenced by fluctuations in the bond market in anticipation of the Fed’s comments this afternoon.”

The LendingTree Weekly Mortgage Rate Pulse is a snapshot of the lowest and average home loan rates available within the LendingTree network of lenders and is compiled every Wednesday from data that is gathered from the previous day to reflect the most up to date information on current mortgage rates.

See how your state compares below by comparing mortgage data including a snapshot of the lowest 30-year fixed rates offered by lenders on the LendingTree network, average loan-to-value ratio and percentage of consumers with negative equity:
