30-Year Fixed Mortgage Rates Continue to Rise for Third Consecutive Week;
Current Rate is 3.44%, According to Zillow Mortgage Rate Ticker

SEATTLE, Feb. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on
Zillow® Mortgage Marketplace is currently 3.44 percent, up two basis points
from 3.42 percent at this same time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate
hovered between 3.43 and 3.48 percent for the majority of the week, dropping
to the current rate this morning.

"Despite an unexpected increase in the unemployment rate, rates ended the week
essentially unchanged," said Erin Lantz, director of Zillow Mortgage
Marketplace. "This coming week, we expect rates to remain fairly flat with
limited economic news that might change the consensus that the economy is
recovering, but at a slow and cautious pace."

Zillow's real-time mortgage rates are based on thousands of custom mortgage
quotes submitted daily to anonymous borrowers on the Zillow Mortgage
Marketplace site, and reflect the most recent changes in the market. These are
not marketing rates, or a weekly survey.

The rate for a 15-year fixed home loan is currently 2.7 percent, while the
rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 2.35 percent.
