The national, 30-year fixed-mortgage rate (FRM) slightly decreased from a week earlier, setting a new record low average of 4.26%, according to the Zillow Mortgage Marketplace weekly update. This is down 0.03% from last week and 0.02% below the previous record low. Regionally, 30-year rates vary, but the majority of states witnessed a deflation. Most large states saw a decline in rates: California's current rate of 4.28% is down from 4.3% last week; Texas' at 4.23% is down from 4.28%, and Massachusetts' at 4.26% is down from 4.27%. Rates substantially decreased in New York to 4.24% from 4.31% and New Jersey to 4.19% from 4.27%. Rates increased in Washington to 4.33% from 4.29% as well as Colorado, up to 4.3% from 4.17%. Rates remained flat in Florida and Pennsylvania at 4.2% and 4.37%, respectively. Zillow reported the national average rate for 15-year fixed home loans remained flat at 3.82%, while the rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 3.29%. Zillow's rates are based on real-time mortgage quotes from lenders registered with, but not exclusively bound to the company. The national average comes from thousands of daily quotes given to anonymous borrowers through their website. State averages are also available. Write to Christine Ricciardi.
