The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) Average U.S. mortgage rates continued to slide this week, raising prospects of a wave of consumers refinancing their loans. The 30-year mortgage fell further below 4 percent.

Mortgage company Freddie Mac says the nationwide average for a 30-year loan declined to 3.92 percent from 3.97 percent last week. The average rate is at its lowest level since June 2013. It was 4.53 percent in January. The average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, fell to 3.08 percent from 3.18 percent.

It was the fifth straight week of declines for mortgage rates.

Across the country last week, homeowners and would-be homeowners eager for a bargain rate fired off inquiries to lenders.
