The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow Mortgages is currently 4.06 percent, down two basis points from this time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate hovered around 4.08 percent for the majority of the week, falling to 3.97 percent on Friday before returning to the current rate.
“Mortgage rates dropped mid-week to their lowest level in two months on weak U.S. economic data and geopolitical concerns over the escalating tensions between Ukraine and Russia,” said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. “This week, we expect rates to inch back up unless international turmoil continues to lead the news.”
Zillow’s real-time mortgage rates are based on thousands of custom mortgage quotes submitted daily to anonymous borrowers on the Zillow Mortgages 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 3.12 percent, while the rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 2.79 percent.
