mortgage rate update

Current mortgage rates for 30-year fixed mortgages decreased this week, with the current rate borrowers were quoted on Zillow at 3.41 percent, down 3 basis points from last week.

The 30-year fixed mortgage fell throughout the week, dipping below 3.40 percent before rising to the current rate.

"Mortgage rates fell for the second week in a row and are now back near three-year lows due to the combination of investor fears after weak European financial sector earnings and a relatively weak jobs report last Friday," said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. "Several Fed speeches are likely to drive rates this week, although markets will also keep an eye on oil markets."

Additionally, the 15-year fixed mortgage rate was 2.66 percent, and for 5/1 ARMs, the rate was 2.67 percent.
