Mortgage Rates Fall Slightly, Remain Below 4% Again
By Lauren Braun
Mortgage rates for 30-year fixed mortgages fell this week, with the average rate borrowers were quoted on Zillow Mortgages at 3.77 percent, down from 3.82 percent at this time last week.
"Rates eased last week on Europe's weak economic data and the unexpected rate cut from China's central bank," said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. "Looking ahead, with several important U.S. data reports scheduled for release, we expect modest volatility in this holiday-shortened week."
