SEATTLE, Sept. 3, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow ® Mortgage Marketplace is currently 4.45 percent, up 8 basis points from 4.37 percent at this time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate hovered between 4.38 and 4.4 percent for the majority of the week before rising to the current rate this morning.
"Mortgages rates were essentially unchanged last week because of mixed economic data and low trading levels associated with the shortened holiday work week," said Erin Lantz, director of Zillow Mortgage Marketplace. "Although the month-end unemployment report is always an important focus for markets, this week most attention will be focused on whether the Syrian situation intensifies, pushing investors into safer investments which would likely push mortgage rates down."
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.
