Today’s current average mortgage rate on a 30-year fixed mortgage is 7.29%,
down 0.27 percentage points from the previous week.

Borrowers may be able to save on interest costs by going with a 15-year fixed mortgage, as they often have a lower rate than that of a 30-year, fixed-rate home loan. The average APR on a 15-year fixed mortgage is 6.30%. However, you’ll have higher monthly payments since you’re paying off your mortgage in 15 years instead of 30.

30-Year Mortgage Rates

Borrowers paid an average rate of 7.29% on a 30-year mortgage. This was down from the previous week’s rate of 7.56%.

Currently, the average annual percentage rate (APR) on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is 7.19%. This is lower than last week when the APR was 7.49%. The APR contains both mortgage interest and the lender fees to help give a more complete picture of loan costs.

To get an idea of how much you’ll pay: a $100,000 mortgage with a 30-year fixed-rate loan at the current average interest rate of 7.29% will cost you about $685 including principal and interest (taxes and fees not included) each month, the Forbes Advisor mortgage calculator shows. That’s around $146,488 in total interest over the life of the loan.

15-Year Mortgage Rates

Today’s 15-year mortgage (fixed-rate) is 6.36%, down 0.40 percentage point from the previous week. The same time last week, the 15-year, fixed-rate mortgage was at 6.76%.

The APR on a 15-year fixed is 6.30%. It was 6.71% a week earlier.

A 15-year, fixed-rate mortgage with today’s interest rate of 6.36% will cost $863 per month in principal and interest on a $100,000 mortgage (not including taxes and insurance). In this scenario, borrowers would pay approximately $55,388 in total interest.

Jumbo Mortgage Rates

Today’s average interest rate on a 30-year fixed-rate jumbo mortgage fell 0.28 point from last week to 7.27%.

Borrowers with a 30-year, fixed-rate jumbo mortgage with today’s interest rate of 7.27% will pay approximately $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 $5,127.
