Mortgage rates have moved lower again, opening another window for anyone looking to lock in a 30-year loan in the mid-4 percent range.

Freddie Mac’s widely watched weekly survey of lender offering rates showed the 30-year fixed rate dropping to 4.76 percent from 4.88 percent a week earlier.  Mortgage professionals saw even better deals for highly qualified borrowers.

The 15-year fixed mortgage dropped to 3.97 percent from 4.15 percent, the survey showed.  Its lowest level since December.

Borrowers would have paid lenders and average of 0.7 percent of th loan amount to obtain the fixed rates.
