30-Year Fixed Mortgage Rates Rise on Expectations for a December Rate Hike; Current Rate is 3.66%, According to Zillow Mortgage Rate Ticker

SEATTLE, Nov. 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow® Mortgages is currently 3.66 percent, up three basis points from this time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage rose early in the week, then hovered around 3.69 percent before dipping to the current rate.

"Mortgage rates increased last week as Wednesday's Federal Open Market Committee meeting minutes solidified expectations of a December Fed rate hike," said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. "This week, more market movement is likely, as all eyes will be watching mid-week Fed speeches and Friday's monthly jobs report."

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 2.86 percent, while the rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 2.89 percent.
