Mortgage rates dropped below 5%

This point in particular seems suspect, despite it being repeated in multiple places. I’m in a Discord with a bunch of car nuts, one married to a nice lady who originates mortgages in central Ohio. The only way anybody in the area is getting a sub-5% rate is with a sky-high credit rating shopping multiple banks against each other, a very large purchase price, and paying points. Anybody looking for a more “normal” purchase is getting around 6%.
