Mortgage rates barely changed in San Francisco this week. Meanwhile, it ranked 5th most walkable city in the country, SF Curbed reports.

Washington DC-based think tank, Smart Growth America's 2016 report "Foot Traffic Ahead" ranked the number of walkable neighborhoods in the country's 30 largest cities. "Walkable" is defined as having 100 or more intersections per square mile, a high number of commercial properties and a walk score of 70.5 or higher.

The report found that, to live near a walkable neighborhood in San Francisco, you will pay 58% more in rent. But residents in San Francisco pay less in transit, only 19% per month, compared to the average across the 30 cities studied, of 25%, SF Curbed notes.

The benchmark 30-year fixed-rate mortgage in San Francisco remained at 3.56%, according to the Bankrate.com national survey of large lenders. The mortgages in this week's survey had an average total of 0.26 discount and origination points. Nationally, the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was 3.73%.
