SEATTLE, Aug. 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow® Mortgages is currently 3.67 percent, down three basis points from this time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate fell Tuesday, then hovered between 3.64 percent and 3.70 percent for most of the week before settling at the current rate.

"Mortgage rates fell last week to their lowest levels since late June, driven down by geopolitical uncertainty as tensions with North Korea escalated and weak inflation data pushed back expectations for Fed rate hikes," said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. "This week geopolitical developments could continue to move markets, but several speeches by Fed officials late in the week could also provide insight into the Committee's view of recent inflation data."

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 2.92 percent, and the rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 2.96 percent.
