Current mortgage rates for 30-year fixed mortgages fell this week, with the current rate borrowers were quoted on Zillow at 3.39 percent, down 1 basis point from last week.

The 30-year fixed mortgage hovered between 3.40 and 3.45 percent for most of the week before dipping to the current rate.

"Mortgage rates were flat last week, holding near three-year lows," said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. "With relatively minor data scheduled for release this week, rates should remain near their current levels."

Additionally, the 15-year fixed mortgage rate was 2.63 percent, and for 5/1 ARMs, the rate was 2.64 percent.
