A number of closely-watched mortgage rates held steady in the New York Metro area this week.

Key 30-year rate flat in New York Metro

The average rate on the benchmark 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rate for the New York Metro area held at 4.06 percent, according to Bankrate's national survey of large lenders. The local rate exceeded the national rate of 4.05 percent.

In this week's survey, the mortgages had an average of 0.10 discount and origination points.

With the most popular mortgage rate standing still, it's neither good news nor bad news for potential borrowers who were waiting to lock a mortgage rate.

Monthly payments on a hypothetical $165,000 30-year fixed-rate mortgage were also constant, staying at $793.45.

Other New York Metro mortgage types mixed

On the other hand, the average rate for 30-year jumbo mortgages ticked up this week, increasing 5 basis points to 3.94 percent. Jumbo mortgages are used for loan amounts above limits set by the Federal Housing Finance Agency; for the New York Metro area, that limit is $636,150.

The average rate for 15-year fixed-rate mortgages stayed unchanged at 3.23 percent. Monthly payments on a hypothetical $165,000 15-year fixed-rate mortgage held, remaining at $1,157.80.

The 15-year fixed is a popular mortgage for homeowners who want to refinance. Rates staying put is neither good news nor bad news for refinancers thinking about locking soon.

The benchmark 5/1 adjustable-rate mortgage rate climbed to 3.40 percent this week, a rise of 5 basis points. 5/1 adjustable-rate mortgages allow property owners to pay a fixed rate for the first 5 years, and the rate adjusts once per year every year after. They are the most common type of variable-rate mortgage.

Methodology: The "Bankrate.com National Average," or "national survey of large lenders," is conducted weekly. To conduct the National Average survey, Bankrate obtains rate information from the 10 largest banks and thrifts in 10 large U.S. markets. In the Bankrate.com national survey, our Market Analysis team gathers rates and/or yields on banking deposits, loans and mortgages. We've conducted this survey in the same manner for more than 30 years, and because it's consistently done the way it is, it gives an accurate national apples-to-apples comparison.

Hi, Am Samantha Hill from Brooklyn, New York, USA. I would like to bring this to the notice of the public about how i met Mr John Martin, the managing director of Bradley Brooks Loan Home after i lost my job and being denied loan by my bank and other financial institution due to my credit score. I could not pay my children’s fees. I was behind on bills, about to be thrown out of the house due to my inability to pay my rent, It was during this period my kids were taken from me by foster care. Then i set out to seek for funds online where i lost $3,510 that i borrowed from friends which i was rip off by two companies. Until i read about: UPRIGHT FINANCIAL SERVICES LIMITED (uprightfinancialservices.ltd@gmail.com)
