30 year fixed mortgage rates underwent the biggest weekly drop since January. Mortgage rates for 30-year fixed mortgages fell 12 basis points Check out the article below to learn more details.

The 30-year fixed mortgage rate hovered around 4 percent for most of last week, peaking at 4.09 percent on Monday before easing back down to the current rate on Tuesday. “Mortgage rates stayed below 4 percent for much of last week on news of a potential European Central Bank plan to implement a stimulus program similar to the Federal Reserve’s that has kept rates low in the U.S.,” said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. “We expect rates to remain flat in this holiday-shortened week, as any bright spots in domestic economic data will likely be overshadowed by concerns about the European economy.” Additionally, the 15-year fixed mortgage rate this morning was 3.04 percent, and for 5/1 ARMs, the rate was 2.81 percent.
