What are today's average mortgage rates?

Average mortgage rates inched lower again yesterday. And conventional loans started out this morning at 2.625% (2.625% APR) for a 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage. 

Yesterday’s fall was a surprise. Read on for what happened. In the meantime, I think mortgage rates might inch either side of the neutral line or hold steady today.

What’s a mortgage rate?

A mortgage rate is the rate of interest charged by a mortgage lender. Mortgage rates can be either fixed (it stays the same for the term of the loan) or variable (the rate will adjust at some point during the term of the loan). Mortgage rates are determined by the lender and can vary depending on your unique situation — your credit score, loan term, and downpayment can all affect your mortgage rate.1

Why compare mortgage rates?

The more lenders you compare when shopping for mortgage rates, the more likely you are to get the lowest interest rate available for you. Getting a lower interest rate could save you hundreds of dollars over a year of mortgage payments — and thousands of dollars over the life of the loan. Yes, it definitely pays to shop around.2
