The 30-year fixed mortgage rate hovered around 3.73 percent throughout the week before rising to the current rate Tuesday.

“Mortgage rates held steady last week,” said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. “We expect rates to remain calm leading up to Thursday’s Federal Open Market Committee statement as markets eagerly anticipate any signal or action from the Fed on interest rates.”

Additionally, the 15-year fixed mortgage rate was 2.90 percent, and for 5/1 ARMs, the rate was 2.76 percent.
