"Last week, rates dipped mid-week due to continued concerns about Ukraine," said Erin Lantz, director of mortgages at Zillow. "This week, we expect geo-political uncertainty will continue to remain top-of-mind for investors, and will keep rates somewhat depressed until the situation in Ukraine stabilizes." Additionally, the 15-year fixed mortgage rate this morning was 3.17 percent and for Mortgage rates for 5/1 ARMs, the rate was 2.75 percent.
