30-Year Fixed Mortgage Rates Plummet 16 Basis Points


The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow(R) Mortgage Marketplace is currently 4.23 percent, down 16 basis points from 4.39 percent at this time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate hovered near 4.39 percent for the majority of the week before plummeting to 4.29 percent on Friday. Rates continued to fall over the weekend and early this week.

"Rates dipped after Friday’s jobs report revealed employment below expectations by a wide margin. Although disappointing, the jobs report on its own is unlikely to offset the overall upward trend in rates," says Erin Lantz, director of mortgages at Zillow. "This week, we expect rates to remain fairly stable as markets await additional data that might reinforce or contradict the relatively subdued economic tone set by the jobs report."

Zillow’s real-time mortgage rates are based on thousands of custom mortgage quotes submitted daily to anonymous borrowers on the Zillow Mortgage Marketplace 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 3.20 percent, while the rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 2.83 percent.
