30-Year Fixed Mortgage Rates Rise Slightly; Current Rate is 3.44%, According to Zillow Mortgage Rate Ticker

SEATTLE, April 19, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow® Mortgages is currently 3.44 percent, up 5 basis points from this time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage hovered around 3.42 percent for most of the week before rising to the current rate.

“Mortgage rates continued to hold near 3-year lows last week, despite several economic headlines that could have resulted in downward pressure,” said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. “There is little data on the schedule for this week, so rates will likely remain at their current level.”

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 2.66 percent, while the rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 2.70 percent.
