SEATTLE, March 18, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow ® Mortgage Marketplace is currently 4.19 percent, down 2 basis points from this time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate steadily declined last week, dropping to as low as 4.13 percent over the weekend before rising slightly to today's rate.
"Last week, rates dipped mid-week due to continued concerns about Ukraine," said Erin Lantz, director of mortgages at Zillow. "This week, we expect geo-political uncertainty will continue to remain top-of-mind for investors, and will keep rates somewhat depressed until the situation in Ukraine stabilizes."
