It seems implausible -- even impossible -- yet here we are again. For the 10th time in the last 11 weeks, conventional mortgage interest rates dropped to a new historic low
. The average 30-year fixed rate hit 4.32 percent for the week finishing Sept. 2, a drop from the previous week's 4.36 percent, according to Freddie Mac. Rates on 15-year fixed-rate mortgages
dropped to an average of 3.83 percent, down from last week's 3.86 percent. Unbeatable rates may encourage trigger-shy buyers to take a shot at homeownership this fall after the late-summer slump.
