The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow Mortgage Marketplace is currently 4.16 percent, up five basis points from 4.11 percent at this time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage rates hovered between 4.11 and 4.14 percent for the majority of the week before rising to the current rate this morning.
"Rates rose slightly last week, but remain relatively unchanged since the government shutdown began two weeks ago," said Erin Lantz, director of mortgages at Zillow. "Despite some non-government economic data scheduled to be released next week, we expect rates to remain fairly steady until the government re-opens and releases more insightful data on the health of the economy."
Zillow's real-time mortgage rates are based on thousands of custom mortgage quotes submitted daily to anonymous borrowers on the Zillow Mortgage Marketplace site, and reflect the most recent changes in the market. These are not marketing rates, or a weekly survey.
The rate for a 15-year fixed home loan is currently 3.18 percent, while the rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 2.84 percent.
