SEATTLE, Oct. 23, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow ® Mortgage Marketplace is currently 3.28 percent, up two basis points from 3.26 percent at this same time last week. After peaking at 3.35 percent on Friday, the 30-year fixed mortgage rate dropped and hovered between 3.27 and 3.3 percent over the weekend, dropping to the current rate this morning.
"This past week, rates moved up slightly on optimism about the Eurozone's recovery and improving U.S. economic data," said Erin Lantz, director of Zillow Mortgage Marketplace. "Although Wednesday's Federal Open Market Committee announcement has the potential to move markets, we don't expect policy changes that would move markets out of the flat sideways pattern in the coming week."
