30-Year Fixed Mortgage Rates Rise Slightly; Current Rate is 3.55%, According to Zillow Mortgage Rate Ticker

SEATTLE, March 15, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow® Mortgages is currently 3.55 percent, up two basis points from this time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage rose early in the week then hovered around the current rate for the rest of the week.

“Mortgage rates increased last week on news of further stimulus from the European Central Bank and talk of an agreement to limit oil output,” said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. “This week, any major rate movements will depend on the Fed’s Wednesday statement and any signals for the path of interest rates ahead.”

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 2.73 percent, while the rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 2.90 percent.
