SEATTLE, July 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow® Mortgages is currently 3.83 percent, up 16 basis points from this time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate rose throughout the week, reaching 3.87 percent on Tuesday before falling to the current rate on Wednesday.

"Mortgage rates moved decisively higher last week, reaching their highest levels in two months, on speculation that the European Central Bank is looking to end its bond-buying program which has helped hold down long-term interest rates around the world," said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. "Despite a holiday-shortened week, important economic news later in the week - notably today's publication of the minutes from the Federal Reserve's June meeting and Friday's monthly jobs report - could move rates."

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 3.07 percent, while the rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 3.09 percent.
