The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow Mortgages is currently 3.29 percent, down one basis point from this time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage fell steadily last week before rising to the current rate on Tuesday.
“Mortgage rates fell last week, retreating toward the low levels last seen in the days immediately following the Brexit vote,” said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. “Markets seem to be in a holding pattern, fluctuating just above historic lows. Wednesday’s Federal Open Market Committee July meeting minutes could move rates slightly, but little is expected until the Kansas City Fed’s annual Jackson Hole meeting next 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 2.58 percent, while the rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 2.69 percent.
