SEATTLE, Dec. 11, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow ® Mortgage Marketplace is currently 3.17 percent, up one basis point from 3.16 percent at this same time last week. After peaking at 3.22 percent on Friday, the 30-year fixed rate fluctuated between 3.15 and 3.2 percent over the remainder of the week before rising to the current rate this morning.
"Rates rose slightly after a stronger-than-expected jobs report on Friday, but the boost was short-lived and rates returned to the same low levels as the past few weeks," said Erin Lantz, director of Zillow Mortgage Marketplace. "We expect rates to remain fairly flat this week in anticipation of the Federal Reserve's plans to extend 'Operation Twist,' the treasury and bond buying program that has helped keep rates low."
