SEATTLE, Jan. 05, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow® Mortgages was 3.74 percent according to the latest data released on Monday i, down seven basis points from the same time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage fell to 3.82 percent on Wednesday, then hovered there before dropping to the current rate on Monday.

"Mortgage rates fell early this week as financial markets returned from the New Year's holiday to a collapse in Asian equities, which pushed capital flows to safe assets including US mortgage bonds," said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. "We expect continued volatility this week leading up to Wednesday's publication of the December Federal Open Market Committee meeting minutes and Friday's all-important jobs report."
