This is just a small sample available of rates and products. This is not a guarantee nor is it a commitment of interest rate. Rates are as of October 9, 2009 at 3:00 p.m. and may change at any time. Available programs may change at anytime as well. To see rates that I’m quoting “live” click here.

For purposes of this post: “1 point” is 1% of the loan amount and would be reflected in line 801 or 808 (depending on whether the loan is brokered or not). Unless the rate is bought down; there are zero discount points referenced which would be reflected on line 802 of the GFE/HUD-1 Settlement Statement. Zero points means no points are paid on lines 801, 802 or 808 (this applies to all rates quoted on this post).

*APR = Annual Percentage Rate

**ARM = Adjustable Rate Mortgage.   With adjustable rate mortgages, your rate may increase after the initial fixed period is over.
