30-Year Fixed Mortgage Rates

Borrowers paid an average rate on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage of 7.26%. This was up from the previous week’s rate of 7.24%.

Currently, the average annual percentage rate (APR) on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is 7.27%. This is higher than last week when the APR was 7.26%. The APR contains both mortgage interest and the lender fees to help give a more complete picture of loan costs.

To get an idea how much you’ll pay: a $100,000 mortgage with a 30-year fixed-rate loan at the current average interest rate of 7.26% will cost you about $683, including principal and interest (taxes and fees not included) each month, the Forbes Advisor mortgage calculator shows. That’s around $145,828 in total interest over the life of the loan.

15-Year Mortgage Rates

Today, the 15-year fixed mortgage rate is 6.49%, lower than it was one day ago. Last week, it was 6.47%. Today’s rate is higher than the 52-week low of 4.92%.

The APR on a 15-year fixed is 6.53%. It was 6.51% this time last week.

At today’s interest rate of 6.49%, a 15-year fixed-rate mortgage would cost approximately $871 per month in principal and interest per $100,000. You would pay around $56,700 in total interest over the life of the loan.

Jumbo Mortgage Rates

The current average interest rate on a 30-year, fixed-rate jumbo mortgage is 7.28%— 0.01% up from last week. The 30-year jumbo mortgage rate had a 52-week low of 5.46% and a 52-week high of 7.43%.

A 30-year jumbo mortgage at today’s fixed interest rate of 7.28% will cost you $684 per month in principal and interest per $100,000. On a $750,000 jumbo mortgage, the monthly principal and interest payment would be approximately $5,137.

5/1 Adjustable-Rate Mortgage Rates
