Long-term mortgage rates fell for the third week in a row, with 15-year fixed-rate loans hitting a new record low and the 30-year fixed-rate hovering at just above 5 percent, Freddie Mac said in releasing the results of its weekly Primary Mortgage Market Survey.

The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 5.04 percent — with an average 0.7 point — for the week ending Sept. 17, Freddie Mac said, down from 5.07 percent last week and 5.78 percent a year ago.
