30-Year Fixed Mortgage Rates Fall; Current Rate is 3.75 Percent, According to Zillow Mortgage Rate Ticker

Why switching websites is more costly than you think Shiny new tools appeal, but they have hidden costs READ MORE

Current rates for 30-year fixed mortgages by state.

The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow Mortgages is currently 3.75 percent, down eight basis points from this time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate fell early in the week, then hovered around 3.76 percent for most of the week before settling at the current rate. The rate for a 15-year fixed home loan is currently 2.99 percent, and the rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is also 2.99 percent.

“Mortgage rates fell from 60-day highs last week, prompted by weak domestic inflation and retail sales data, and reports that interest rates could rise in Europe as the European Central Bank ends recession-era policies,” said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. “Developments overseas – notably Thursday’s ECB meeting – are likely to drive financial markets this week with few major U.S. data releases on the schedule.”
