30-Year Fixed Mortgage Rates Rise Slightly; Current Rate is 4.39%, According
to Zillow Mortgage Rate Ticker

SEATTLE, Jan. 7, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 30-year fixed mortgage rate on
Zillow® Mortgage Marketplace is currently 4.39 percent, up one basis point
from 4.38 percent at this time last week. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate
remained relatively flat this week, hovering between 4.38 and 4.42 percent for
the majority of the week.

"Rates were flat during last week's holiday-shortened trading week," said Erin
Lantz, director of mortgages at Zillow. "This week rates should remain steady
unless the December jobs report released on Friday reveals unexpected insights
into the health of the U.S. labor market."

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 3.35 percent, while the
rate for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is 2.89 percent.
