30-Year Fixed Mortgage Rates Continue to Fall; Current Rate is 3.43%, According to Zillow Mortgage Rate Ticker
SEATTLE, Feb. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow® Mortgages is currently 3.43 percent, down seven basis points from this time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage hovered around 3.47 percent for most of the week before falling to the current rate.
“Mortgage rates fell last week to their lowest levels since May 2013 due to continuing financial market turmoil, concern about oil prices, and shifting central bank policies overseas,” said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. “Financial market developments should continue to dominate headlines this week, as well as expected Congressional testimony by Fed Chair Janet Yellen. Rates could move lower if her comments are more dovish than expected.”
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 2.66 percent, while the rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 2.59 percent.
