The average rate on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage fell six basis points, the rate for the 15-year fixed declined six basis points, and the 5/1 ARM went down three basis points, according to a NerdWallet survey of daily mortgage rates published Tuesday by national lenders.

The average rate on the 30-year fixed is six basis points higher than one week ago and three basis points higher than one year ago. A basis point is one one-hundredth of one percent.

30-year fixed: 4.45% APR (-0.06)
15-year fixed: 4.04% APR (-0.06)
5/1 ARM: 4.40% APR (-0.03)
