Mortgage rates for 30-year fixed mortgages rose this week, with the current rate borrowers were quoted on Zillow at 3.75 percent, up 3 basis points from last week.

The 30-year fixed mortgage rate hovered around 3.75 percent throughout the week before dipping to the current rate.

“Mortgage rates spiked late last week after the European Central Bank surprised markets by not expanding its asset purchase program, which aims to push rates lower,” said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. “Following that spike, rates have retreated to only slightly above where they began the week. We expect markets to be quieter this week with few important data releases or speeches on the schedule.”

Additionally, the 15-year fixed mortgage rate was 2.91 percent, and for 5/1 ARMs, the rate was 2.92 percent.

Check Zillow for mortgage rate trends and up-to-the-minute mortgage rates for your state, or use the mortgage calculator to calculate monthly payments at the current rates.
