Fannie Mae: Mortgage Rates Will Fall Back to 4.5%

Average rates are expected to be 4.7% and 4.4% in the first and fourth quarters of 2023, respectively — down from 5.2% in the second quarter of this year, per the August report.
Since the beginning of the year, long-term rates have risen two percentage points and last week averaged 5.55%. A year ago, rates were below 3%.
