SEATTLE, May 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow ® Mortgages is currently 3.84 percent, up four basis points from this time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate rose five basis points on Friday, then hovered around the current rate for the rest of the week.

"Mortgage rates rose last Friday after a strong jobs report made it very likely that the Fed will hike interest rates again in June, but edged slightly lower after centrist Emmanuel Macron won the French presidential election, reducing financial market risk in Europe," said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. "This week, markets are likely to focus on several Fed speeches and inflation data due Wednesday, but rates should remain stable overall."

Zillow's real-time mortgage rates are based on thousands of custom mortgage quotes submitted daily to anonymous borrowers on the Zillow Mortgages 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 3.06 percent, while the rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 2.93 percent.
