SEATTLE, April 14, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow® Mortgages is currently 3.58 percent, up three basis points from this time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate rose throughout the week before dipping to the current rate on Tuesday.
"Rates inched up last week as new data suggested the U.S. economy is on increasingly stable ground despite March's weak jobs report," said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. "Mortgage markets remain extremely sensitive to the ups and downs of economic news, but overall we expect the trend of gradually rising rates to continue 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 2.87 percent, while the rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 2.83 percent.
Purchase Mortgage Application Activity
Zillow predicts tomorrow's seasonally adjusted Mortgage Bankers Association Weekly Application Index will show purchase loan activity decreased 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.
