Why Isn’t The Mortgage Loan Interest Rate I See On The Internet The Same Offered To Me?

Why do house hunters find FHA home loan interest rates advertised online to be different than the interest rates offered to them by a lender? Many borrowers want to know what the difference in rates will be and why. The answer is that several variables combine when your lender is reviewing your application for a new mortgage. Your interest rate will be offered based in part on those variables. What are some of these variables? FHA Home Loan Interest Rates And Daily Market Conditions FHA home loan interest rates are affected daily by investor behavior, breaking financial news, politics, even natural disasters and holidays.

Five Things You Should Know About FHA Refinance Loans

FHA Lenders With The Lowest Mortgage Loan Interest Rates

Which FHA lender offers the lowest interest rates? This is a question on the minds of all FHA borrowers, whether you are looking for an FHA new purchase loan, an FHA cash-out refinance, or even an FHA Reverse Mortgage. The answer to this question, however, is more complicated than “Lender X offers the best rates”. It Pays To Shop Around For FHA Loan Interest Rates If you need to know the lowest interest rate offered by a group of lenders, you will need to check with each participating lender. But there’s a catch-interest rates fluctuate, and can change daily. The rates you see today may not apply tomorrow, and those interest rates are listed without reference to a borrower’s credit rating and credit history.

First-Time Refinance Advice

FHA Home Loans: Facts You Should Know Before You Buy

FHA loan facts you should know before you buy include a variety of concerns, one of which is an optional issue some borrowers choose not to address until it is too late. Don’t make the same mistakes as some first time home buyers-the money you save could be significant. Never Buy A Home Without A Home Inspection It’s important to point out that the headline for this section does NOT read “Never buy a home without an appraisal”. FHA appraisals are a mandatory part of the home loan process, but inspections are on the borrower to arrange, pay for, and review. Home inspections are the only way a borrower can make a truly informed purchase. Those who rely on the appraisal alone for any new purchase mortgage do so at | more...

FHA Mortgage Rates: Trending Slightly Higher After Recent Lows

Since our last report, we’ve seen mortgage rate trends push rates to lows we haven’t seen since the Christmas holiday season but the start of the new week has seen those rates creep slightly higher. Even with the minor upward movement, gone are the previously reported ranges of rates, replaced by single-digit best execution numbers some industry pros are urging borrowers to take full advantage of in situations where locking/floating is being considered. 30-year fixed rate conventional mortgages are reported, at the time of this writing, at the very bottom of the four percent range best execution. That means an extremely well-qualified conventional borrower could find rates as low as 4.0%. FHA mortgage loan rates are still below the four percent threshold, coming in at a best execution 3.75%.

FHA Adjustable Rate Mortgage Rules: Rates, Term, and Adjustments

Some potential FHA borrowers might be surprised to learn that an FHA adjustable rate mortgage (FHA ARM) is an option to consider, but for those with specific financial needs and goals, an FHA ARM loan might be a very good idea. FHA adjustable rate mortgages have specific controls over how much and when an interest rate change may occur, but there are other rules that also affect this type of FHA mortgage. All the rules for FHA ARM loans are found in HUD 4000.1, the FHA Single Family Loan Handbook. It says that the initial rate and margin are established by the lender, and that the margin must be constant over the entire term of the mortgage. Furthermore, “The interest rate must remain constant for an initial period of 1, | more...

Mortgage Rate Trends: Pushing Higher

Since our last report, mortgage rate trends have been in the “higher” category. That’s due at least in part, according to our sources, to local political drama which has sent investors moving for safer havens. Those moves often reflect badly on rates, and those hoping for a chance to squeeze more recovery out of current trends likely weren’t counting on breaking news about possible impeachment proceedings over FBI director James Comey and questions of Russian involvement in U.S. politics to influence mortgage rates. But they have, however indirectly. At the time of this writing, 30-year fixed rate conventional mortgage rate numbers have taken an upward turn to 4.0%, best execution. That’s out of a previous range of rates, with 4.0% being the bottom end of the range. FHA mortgage loan | more...

Mortgage Loan Interest Rate Trends: Up And Down

In our last report we noted that mortgage loan interest rate numbers could be influenced by the substance of the most recent Fed announcement, or more specifically investor reaction to those details. Rates did try to creep lower ahead of Wednesday’s Fed event, and Wednesday morning it seemed like rates were trying to move lower still. But the Fed came and went, rates began to move higher, and according to our sources at the end of the day on Wednesday we were right back to where things were at before the pre-Fed downward movement. Which is to say that rates have been moving up and down within a certain range without any real major, breaking news-type dramatic shifts. 30-year fixed rate mortgage loan interest rate numbers are in a best | more...

Mortgage Loan Interest Rate Trends: Holding Ahead Of Fed

Since our last report, mortgage loan interest rate trends have held on to some of the improvement seen last week, closing out Friday more or less unchanged, depending on the lender. This week is a big one-there is a much anticipated announcement by the Fed on Wednesday that has potential to influence rates depending on investor reaction to that announcement. It is entirely possible we could see rates in a defensive mode leading up to the fed with few changes one way or the other. There’s also an important employment report due out on Friday that could further influence rates-again, depending on investor reaction to the news. These two events, their implications, and how investors deal with all of it could make for a tricky week. There’s also breaking news | more...

Mortgage Rate Trends: Moving Higher

Since our last report, mortgage rate numbers went from an incursion into sub-four percent territory for the most competitive lenders back up to highs we haven’t seen in approximately two weeks. Domestic tax policy, overseas election drama, and other factors have played a part in the recent ups and downs, but what we’re seeing is short-term influences rather than indications of a possible long-term trend. At the moment it’s tough to say what the mid-to-long term direction of rates might be. We’re in an uncertain period and much of our reporting lately on mortgage rate movement has to do with these short term issues. At the time of this writing, 30-year fixed rate conventional mortgages are back to a range between the very bottom of the four percent range and | more...
