“Mortgage rates eased this week due to market concerns that the housing market will be a longer drag on the economy,” said Frank Nothaft, Freddie Mac vice president and chief economist. “May’s housing starts fell for the first time in four months, while home builder optimism in June fell to a sixteen-year low.”
