Mortgage rates for home purchase
Today’s 30-year mortgage rate eases, -0.03%
The average rate for a 30-year fixed mortgage is 3.07 percent, a decrease of 3 basis points since the same time last week. This time a month ago, the average rate on a 30-year fixed mortgage was lower, at 3.05 percent.
At the current average rate, you’ll pay a combined $425.39 per month in principal and interest for every $100k you borrow. That represents a decline of $1.63 over what it would have been last week.

15-year fixed mortgage moves lower,-0.02%
The average 15-year fixed-mortgage rate is 2.36 percent, down 2 basis points over the last week.
Monthly payments on a 15-year fixed mortgage at that rate will cost $660 per $100k borrowed. That may squeeze your monthly budget than a 30-year mortgage would, but it comes with some big advantages: You’ll come out several thousand dollars ahead over the life of the loan in total interest paid and build equity much more rapidly.
5/1 ARM rises, +0.09%
The average rate on a 5/1 adjustable rate mortgageis 3.24 percent, ticking up 9 basis points over the last week.
Adjustable-rate mortgages, or ARMs, are mortgage loans that come with a floating interest rate. To put it another way, the interest rate can change periodically throughout the life of the loan, unlike fixed-rate mortgages. These loan types are best for those who expect to refinance or sell before the first or second adjustment. Rates could be considerably higher when the loan first adjusts, and thereafter.
Monthly payments on a 5/1 ARM at 3.24 percent would cost about $435 for each $100,000 borrowed over the initial five years, but could ratchet higher by hundreds of dollars afterward, depending on the loan’s terms.
Jumbo mortgage rate retreats, -0.04%
The average rate for a jumbo mortgage is 3.08 percent, a decrease of 4 basis points from a week ago. This time a month ago, jumbo mortgages’ average rate was lesser, at 3.07 percent.
At today’s average jumbo rate, you’ll pay $425.93 per month in principal and interest for every $100k you borrow. Compared with last week, that’s $2.17 lower.

Are mortgage rates going up?
Throughout 2021, mortgage rates are expected to begin rising again. The National Association of Realtors expects rates to average 3.1% and the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) says mortgage rates will average 3.3% in 2021. These rate estimates are both up from the 3.0% mortgage rate average in 2020 but lower than 2019’s average rates. Many experts say it could be years before mortgage rates return to their pre-pandemic levels.
