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

The preview of the Trump tax plan on Wednesday didn’t compel the bond market to make a major move. But after a week of slowly climbing higher, mortgage rates took a step or two backward today. Without significant economic events to guide them, most lenders merely fine-tuned their rates, with the majority repricing ever-so-slightly lower.


MORTGAGE RATES TODAY, THURSDAY, APRIL 27:

(Change from 4/26)
30-year fixed: 4.21% APR (-0.01)
15-year fixed: 3.58% APR (-0.01)
5/1 ARM: 3.83% APR (-0.02)
