SEATTLE, March 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow ® Mortgage Marketplace is currently 3.46 percent, down nine basis points from 3.55 percent at this same time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate hovered between 3.45 and 3.55 percent for the majority of the week, dropping to the current rate this morning.
"Rates fell slightly this week, as unease about the viability of the Cyprus bailout brought euro zone stability concerns back to the forefront," said Erin Lantz, director of Zillow Mortgage Marketplace. "This coming week, we expect rates to remain fairly steady unless euro zone issues worsen dramatically or Wednesday's Federal Reserve meeting suggests a significant change in monetary policy."
