Home buyers unable to tap into a federal tax credit before it expired on April 30 are finding a consolation prize in mortgage rates, which dropped again this week to near-record lows.

According to Freddie Mac, interest on 30-year fixed loans averaged 4.78 percent compared to 4.84 percent last week, while the 15-year rate slipped to a new low of 4.21 percent from 4.24 percent.

The favorable borrowing costs will improve affordability and soften the impact of the tax credit program ending, says Freddie Mac chief economist Frank Nothaft.
