30-Year Fixed Mortgage Rate Down Slightly, After Rising to a Five-Month High Last Week; Current Rate is 3.88%, According to Zillow Mortgage Rate Ticker
SEATTLE, March 27, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow (Z)® Mortgage Marketplace is currently 3.88 percent, down nine basis points from 3.97 percent at this same time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate hovered between 3.89 and 3.98 percent for the majority of the week, dropping to the current rate early this morning.
"Rates were down slightly from last week's five-month high, but have held steady at this new, somewhat higher plateau," said Erin Lantz, director of Zillow Mortgage Marketplace. "Although rates could certainly drop back to the historic lows we had enjoyed up until early last week, we would expect the drop to be triggered by fairly dramatic economic news out of the United States or Europe, neither of which we expect this week."
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 3.1 percent, while the rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 2.72 percent.
