SEATTLE, April 7, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow® Mortgages is currently 3.55 percent, down seven basis points from this time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate fell throughout the week, reaching 3.47 percent on Sunday before returning to the current rate.
"Rates fell sharply around Friday's highly anticipated jobs report, which showed much weaker job creation and modestly higher wages than expected," said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. "Looking ahead we expect rates to be mostly flat, with reaction to last week's headlines and international news driving rate movement this week."
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 2.79 percent, while the rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 2.67 percent.
Purchase Mortgage Application Activity
Zillow predicts tomorrow's seasonally adjusted Mortgage Bankers Association Weekly Application Index will show purchase loan activity increased by 2 percent from the week prior. Zillow combines loan requests made on Zillow Mortgages last week with the previous week's Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) Weekly Application Index to predict the MBA's Weekly Application Index for purchase loans, which will be released tomorrow.
