    Mortgage rates skidded last week to the lowest level in a year.

    Freddie Mac said the 30-year benchmark mortgage rate fell 10 basis points to 4.31% in the week ending March 14.

    The 15-year fixed rate fell to 3.76% from 3.83%, while the 5-year hybrid adjustable rate mortgage fell to 3.84% from 3.87%.

    “Mortgage rates declined decisively this week amid various market reports, a strong bond auction and further uncertainty around the Brexit deal, which all contributed to driving bond yields lower,” said Sam Khater, chief economist, in a statement.

    Housing activity has been lackluster since the summer, with new home sales falling in January. Rates would have to drop significantly lower to spur new activity.
