Freddie Mac CEO Says Mortgage Rates Near Bottom

Mortgage rates are “probably as good as it’s going to get” and the housing market is likely to rebound sooner than some forecasts, Freddie Mac (FRE) interim Chief Executive Officer John A. Koskinen said.

“Mortgage rates, if they go down at all further, it’s going to be incremental,” Koskinen told reporters today in Washington after he met with President Barack Obama. “Interest rates are probably close to bottoming out, and therefore we are telling people” to buy a house now. [via Bloomberg]
