Mortgage rates fall for the second week in a row. A for sale sign is posted in front of a single family house on June 13, in Las Vegas.

Mortgage rates dropped again this week, after plunging nearly half a percentage point last week.

The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 6.58% in the week ending November 23, down from 6.61% the week before, according to Freddie Mac. A year ago, the 30-year fixed rate was 3.10%.
