Mortgage rates eased today as 30- and 15-year fixed home loans, as well as 5/1 ARMs, were all lower, according to a NerdWallet survey of mortgage rates published by national lenders Monday morning.

The next expected catalysts for interest rates will be Wednesday’s release of the minutes from the Federal Reserve’s last meeting and Friday’s U.S. employment report. Either could serve to motivate some mortgage rate movement.


MORTGAGE RATES TODAY, MONDAY, APRIL 3:

(Change from 3/31)
30-year fixed: 4.29% APR (-0.02)
15-year fixed: 3.66% APR (-0.05)
5/1 ARM: 3.83% APR (-0.02)
