Zillow Mortgage Rate Ticker

The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow Mortgages is currently 3.79 percent, up seven basis points from this time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate rose steadily throughout the week before settling at the current rate.

“Mortgage rates climbed over the week for the first time since early March, rising about 10 basis points after touching their lowest levels since November last week,” said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. “The rebound in rates was driven by a collective financial market sigh of relief as a political moderate won the most votes in the first round of France’s presidential election, the prospect of growth-boosting tax reform in the US. This week rates should be more stable leading up to Friday’s Q1 GDP report.”
