SEATTLE, Aug. 29, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on Zillow® Mortgages is currently 3.60 percent, down five basis points from this time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate hovered between 3.58 percent and 3.72 percent for most of the week before settling at the current rate on Tuesday.

“Mortgage rates were essentially flat last week, holding near their lowest levels since November 2016,” said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. “This week should be more volatile. Inflation and labor market data due this week will provide this most important view of the American economy before the Fed meets in mid-September, and rates could move if the data contain any surprises. In addition, rates could rise temporarily if ongoing federal budget negotiations break down.”

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 2.89 percent, and the rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 2.91 percent.
