Daily Real Estate News  |  October 29, 2010  |  

The 30-year fixed mortgage rate rose slightly to 4.23 percent this week compared to 4.21 percent a week ago, Freddie Mac reports. 

Interest on 15-year fixed loans also rose, moving to 3.66 percent from 3.64 percent, while the five-year adjustable-rate mortgage fell to 3.41 percent from 3.45 percent and the one-year ARM remained unchanged at 3.30 percent. 

Freddie Mac chief economist Frank Nothaft attributed the flat rates to mixed economic data released this week.
