30-Year Fixed Mortgage Up Slightly; Current Rate is 3.74%, According to Zillow Mortgage Rate Ticker
SEATTLE, March 13, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow (Z)® Mortgage Marketplace is currently 3.74 percent, up five basis points from 3.69 percent at this same time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate hovered between 3.67 and 3.73 percent for the majority of the week, rising to the current rate early this morning.
"Mortgage rates remained flat despite positive economic news in the United States and abroad," said Erin Lantz, director of Zillow Mortgage Marketplace. "Looking ahead, concerns over the spread of the economic issues from Greece to Spain, Italy and Portugal will likely continue to keep rates fairly stable for the rest of the quarter."
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.
