Mortgage rates for 30-year fixed mortgages were unchanged this week, with the current rate borrowers were quoted on Zillow Mortgages at 3.90 percent, the same as this time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate fell early in the week, then spiked to 4.02 percent on Tuesday before settling to the current rate.
“Last week, rates dipped after Friday’s weaker-than-expected jobs report,” said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. “This week, with limited economic data scheduled for release and the bond market closed for Veterans Day, we expect rate movement to remain fairly muted.”
