SEATTLE, April 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 30-year fixed
mortgage rate on
Zillow ® Mortgage Marketplace is currently 3.34 percent, down one basis point from 3.35 percent at this same time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate hovered between 3.41 and 3.32 percent for the majority of the week, dropping to the current rate this morning.
"Rates fell slightly this past week after lower-than-expected retail sales numbers raised concerns about softening consumer confidence," said Erin Lantz, director of Zillow Mortgage Marketplace. "We expect mortgage rates will remain depressed this week due to apprehension related to the Boston Marathon bombing and threats from North Korea."
Zillow's real-time mortgage rates are based on thousands of custom mortgage quotes submitted daily to anonymous borrowers on the Zillow Mortgage Marketplace 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 2.55 percent, while the rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 2.32 percent.
Below are current rates for 30-year fixed mortgages by state. Additional states' rates are available at:
