“Mortgage rates eased a bit following the decline in 10-year Treasury yields,” says Frank Nothaft, vice president and chief economist, Freddie Mac. “Also, the economy added 192,000 jobs in March, which was below the market consensus forecast but followed an upward revision of 22,000 jobs in February. Meanwhile, the unemployment rate held steady at 6.7 percent.”
