The average rate on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rose one basis point, the average 15-year fixed-rate climbed three basis points and the average rate on the 5/1 ARM fell one basis point, according to a NerdWallet survey of daily mortgage rates published by national lenders Wednesday.

The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is six basis points higher than one week ago and 26 basis points lower than one year ago. A basis point is one one-hundredth of one percent.
