Zillow Mortgage Rate Ticker: 30-Year Fixed Mortgage Rate is Currently 3.71 Percent

  • According to Zillow Mortgage Rate Ticker, 30-year fixed mortgage rates have risen for first time in five weeks to 3.71 percent.
  • The rate for a 15-year fixed home loan is currently 2.97 percent, while the rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 2.95 percent.

“Mortgage rates edged higher last week, the first weekly increase since early May, mostly in response to slight changes to the European Central Bank’s forward-looking statements, which reduced downward pressure on U.S. rates,” said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. “This week the FOMC meeting statement due Wednesday is the headline event. A rate hike is largely priced into markets already, but changes to the outlook could move rates.”
