Zillow announced the current national 30-year fixed mortgage rate dropped from 3.41 percent to 3.37 percent last week. According to the real estate website, the drop could be partially due to the recent 52-48 referendum vote in the United Kingdom to leave the European Union, otherwise known as Brexit.
