30-Year Fixed Mortgage Rates Rise For Second Consecutive Week; Current Rate Is 3.48%, According To Zillow Mortgage Rate Ticker

Stocks in this article: Z

SEATTLE, May 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow ® Mortgage Marketplace is currently 3.48 percent, up nine basis points from 3.39 percent at this same time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate hovered between 3.39 and 3.41 percent for the majority of the week before rising near the current rate on Friday.

"Prompted by rumors that the Fed would begin scaling back the QE3 stimulus program earlier than anticipated, mortgage rates rose late last week to a level not seen since early April," said Erin Lantz, director of Zillow Mortgage Marketplace. "This coming week, we expect rates will continue a longer-term upward trend as economic data points towards continued signs of economic recovery."

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 2.62 percent, while the rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 2.30 percent.

Below are current rates for 30-year fixed mortgages by state. Additional states' rates are available at: http://www.zillow.com/mortgage-rates
