"Mortgage rates hit 13-week lows as markets adjusted to the slower wind-down of the Federal Reserve's stimulus program than what was expected," said Erin Lantz, director of mortgages at Zillow. "This coming week, we do not expect the government shutdown to have any significant impact on mortgage rates. Any rise or fall in rates will be due to unexpected news out of Friday's job report."
Zillow's real-time mortgage rates are based on thousands of custom mortgage quotes submitted daily to anonymous borrowers on the Zillow Mortgage Marketplace site, and reflect the most recent changes in the market. These are not marketing rates, or a weekly survey.
The rate for a 15-year fixed home loan is currently 3.12 percent, while the rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 2.90 percent.
