30-year fixed mortgage rates

Today’s 30-year fixed rate mortgage, the most popular mortgage product, is 6.07%, up 0.09% from the previous week. Over the past 52 weeks, the lowest rate was 5.26% and the highest was 6.14%.

The interest rate is just one of the fees included in your mortgage. You will also pay lender fees, which differ from lender to lender. Interest rates and lender fees are factored into the annual percentage rate, or APR. This week, the APR on a 30-year fixed rate mortgage is 6.08%. Last week, the APR was 5.99%.

Let’s say your home loan is $100,000 and you have a 30 year fixed rate mortgage with the current rate of 6.07%, your monthly payment will be approximately $604 including principal and interest (taxes and fees not included), the Forbes mortgage calculator shows. This represents approximately $117,461 in total interest over the life of the loan.

15-year fixed mortgage rates

The average interest rate on the 15-year fixed mortgage is 5.23%. At this time last week, the 15-year fixed rate mortgage was at 5.19%. Today’s rate is above the 52-week low of 4.62%.

On a 15-year fixed term, the APR is 5.26%. Last week it was 5.22%.

With an interest rate of 5.23%, you would pay $803 per month in principal and interest for every $100,000 borrowed. Over the term of the loan, you will pay $44,509 in total interest.

Giant Mortgage Rates

On a 30-year jumbo, the average interest rate is 6.08%, higher than it was on the same date last week. The average rate was 5.98% at the same time last week. The 30-year fixed rate on a jumbo mortgage is currently above the 52-week low of 5.19%.

Borrowers with a giant 30-year fixed rate mortgage with a current interest rate of 6.08% will pay $605 per month in principal and interest per $100,000. This means that on a $750,000 loan, the monthly principal and interest payment would be approximately $4,540, and you would pay approximately $882,700 in total interest over the life of the loan.

5/1 Adjustable Rate Mortgage Rates

Currently, the average interest rate on a 5/1 ARM is 4.53%, up from a 52-week low of 4.11%. Last week, the average rate was 4.42%.

Borrowers with a 5/1 ARM of $100,000 with a current interest rate of 4.53% will spend $508 per month in principal and interest.
