Mortgage rates for 30-year U.S. loans dropped to the lowest level in almost three years, aiding homebuyers during the housing market’s busiest season for transactions. 

The average rate for a 30-year fixed mortgage was 3.58 percent, down from from 3.59 percent last week and the lowest since May 2013, Freddie Mac said in a statement Thursday. The average 15-year rate slipped to 2.86 percent from 2.88 percent, the McLean, Virginia-based mortgage-finance company said.
Mortgage rates have tumbled since the start of the year as concerns of a slowing global economy drove investors to the safety of the government bonds that guide consumer debt. Steady job growth has been fueling demand for a tight supply of listings during the key U.S. spring buying season. While competition among home shoppers is pushing up prices, low interest rates are giving buyers an incentive.
