Be aware that mortgage rates can change without notice and apply only in certain conditions. The APR for the loan products shown reflects the interest rates and estimated prepaid finance charges which include 1% of your loan amount to be paid toward the loan origination charge, but does not include all closing costs or discount points. The displayed rates assume that you’re refinancing a single-family primary residence with a 90-day-lock.

These mortgage rates are based upon a variety of assumptions and conditions which include a consumer credit score which may be higher or lower than your individual credit score. Your loan’s interest rate will depend upon the specific characteristics of your loan transaction and your credit profile up to the time of closing.

The monthly payment amount displayed includes principal, interest and any required mortgage insurance. The payment amount does not include homeowner’s insurance or property taxes which must be paid in addition to your loan payment.

Conventional loans with a down payment less than 20% require mortgage insurance which could increase the monthly payment and APR.

FHA loans require both an upfront and in most cases, an annual mortgage insurance premium. The premium varies based on the individual loan characteristics. For illustrative purposes on FHA loans, our loan detail results include an estimated mortgage insurance payment added to the monthly principal and interest payment.
