How the rate tables on ForTheBestRate.com work
Everyday we receive interest rate information from a third party provider. The mortgage rates, closing costs, and APR information provided in the table is submitted directly by the various mortgage lenders, brokers and banks. We are not responsible for the accuracy of the rates supplied by the financial institutions. Rates may vary for multiple reasons such as the type of properties being financed (i.e. stick built homes, condominiums, manufactured homes, etc), how the owners plan to occupy the property (i.e. owner occupied, second home, or investment property), or multiple of other reasons. You can use the product dropdown tool to navigate between various fixed rate (30,20,15, and 10 year) and adjustable rate solutions (3/1, 5/1, and 7/1 ARMs). You can also view jumbo mortgage rates by entering in a non-conforming loan amount in the relevant field in the survey. We encourage you to speak with multiple mortgage companies directly to verify whether or not you may qualify for the listed pricing.
