30-Year Fixed Mortgage Rates Falls to Historic Lows; Current Rate is 3.25%, According to Zillow Mortgage Rate Ticker

SEATTLE, Aug. 02, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow® Mortgages is currently 3.25 percent. The 30-year fixed mortgage steadily declined last week, hitting historic lows over the weekend before settling at the current rate on Tuesday.

“Mortgage rates fell by almost 10 basis points last week – touching fresh lows – following a disappointing Q2 GDP report and weaker than expected monetary stimulus from the Bank of Japan,” said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. “This week, rates should move slightly higher leading up to this week’s headline event – Friday’s Jobs Report – although inflation data and the Bank of England’s policy meeting could also produce some volatility.”

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 2.54 percent, while the rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 2.64 percent.
