Mortgage rates for 30-year home loans held firm today, while 15-year fixed and 5/1 ARM rates climbed slightly higher, according to a NerdWallet survey of mortgage interest rates published by national lenders Tuesday morning.

After falling to 2017 lows, 30-year mortgage rates have bounced well within a quarter-point range for a month, according to the NerdWallet Mortgage Rate Index. There has been little economic news to move the bond market, and another short-term interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve isn’t expected until June, at the earliest.

President Trump’s tax reform proposal might be the next catalyst to move mortgage rates. The plan is expected to be revealed as soon as tomorrow.


MORTGAGE RATES TODAY, TUESDAY, APRIL 25:

(Change from 4/24)
30-year fixed: 4.19% APR (NC)
15-year fixed: 3.56% APR (+0.03)
5/1 ARM: 3.84% APR (+0.02)
