Mortgage rates fell this week after price reports suggested inflation remains at bay, Freddie Mac said in releasing results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey.

The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 5.38 percent with an average 0.7 point for the week ending June 18, down from 5.59 percent last week and 6.42 percent a year ago.

The 15-year FRM averaged 4.89 percent with an average 0.7 point, down from 5.06 percent last week and 6.02 percent a year ago.
