Mortgage rates diverged in the Chicago area this week.

Key 30-year rate remains unchanged in Chicago

The average rate on the benchmark 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rate for the Chicago area held at 3.98 percent, according to Bankrate's national survey of large lenders.

The mortgages in the survey for this week had an average of 0.17 discount and origination points.

Monthly payments on a hypothetical $165,000 30-year fixed-rate mortgage were also constant, remaining at $785.83.

No clear direction for other Chicago mortgage types

The average rate for 30-year jumbo mortgages also didn't move this week, remaining at 3.83 percent. Jumbo mortgages are used for loan amounts above limits set by the Federal Housing Finance Agency; for the Chicago area, that limit is $424,100.

The average rate for 15-year fixed-rate mortgages ticked upward 2 basis points, up to 3.26 percent. Monthly payments on a hypothetical $165,000, 15-year fixed-rate mortgage moved up with rates, climbing $1.61 to $1,160.21.

The benchmark 5/1 adjustable-rate mortgage rate grew 3 basis points this week, up to 3.33 percent. The most common type of variable-rate mortgage, 5/1 ARMs allow homeowners to pay a fixed rate for the first 5 years, and the rate adjusts once per year every year after.

Methodology: The "Bankrate.com National Average," or "national survey of large lenders," is conducted weekly. To conduct the National Average survey, Bankrate obtains rate information from the 10 largest banks and thrifts in 10 large U.S. markets. In the Bankrate.com national survey, our Market Analysis team gathers rates and/or yields on banking deposits, loans and mortgages. We've conducted this survey in the same manner for more than 30 years, and because it's consistently done the way it is, it gives an accurate national apples-to-apples comparison.
