30-Year Fixed Mortgage Rates Fall Slightly; Current Rate is 3.30%, According to Zillow Mortgage Rate Ticker

SEATTLE, Sept. 20, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow® Mortgages is currently 3.30 percent, down 1 basis point from this time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage hovered between 3.28 percent and 3.36 percent for most of the week before settling at the current rate.

“Mortgage rates were flat last week, holding near their highest levels since late July,” said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. “This week markets will focus on the Fed’s monetary policy decision on Wednesday, the tone of which will set expectations for rate hikes for the rest of 2016. While markets are betting against a rate hike this month, rates could jump if the language is more hawkish than expected.”

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 2.61 percent.
