30-Year Fixed Mortgage Rates Hold Steady; Current Rate is 3.38%, According to Zillow Mortgage Rate Ticker

SEATTLE, Oct. 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow® Mortgages is currently 3.38 percent, up 1 basis point from this time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage hovered around 3.38 percent throughout the week.

/EIN News/ -- “Mortgage rates held near four-month highs last week, edging above their pre-Brexit levels for the first time,” said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. “This week, rates are unlikely to move sharply in either direction before Thursday’s European Central Bank meeting, but could shift late in the week.”

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 2.63 percent, while the rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 2.72 percent.
