Zillow: Mortgage Rates Rise Slightly, But Remain Below Four Percent Mark

The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow Mortgages is currently 3.85 percent, up four basis points from this time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate hovered around 3.90 percent for most of the week, dropping to 3.77 percent Wednesday before rising to the current rate.

“In the absence of major market-moving news last week, mortgage rates remained below 4 percent for the fourth week in a row,” said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. “This week, even though the Federal Open Market Committee will release its meeting minutes on Wednesday announcing the end of the Fed’s stimulus program, this should come as no surprise to markets so we expect rate stability to continue.”

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 three percent, while the rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 2.81 percent.  

Zillow predicts tomorrow’s seasonally adjusted Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) Weekly Application Survey will show purchase loan activity decreased by seven percent from the week prior. Zillow combines loan requests made on Zillow Mortgages last week with the previous week’s Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) Weekly Application Index to predict the MBA’s Weekly Application Index for purchase loans.
