i was just quoted 3.125% 30yr no costs (other than standard $300 appraisal, etc) by northpointe bank for the record.

eta


Rate Quote ID: XX-XXXXX
Loan program: 30 year fixed
Rate (APR): 3.125% (3.125%)
Lender fees: $1
Monthly Payment: $1,211
Lender company: Northpointe Bank


You also got a lower rate because you are refinancing a house that is probably around 250k or more. The higher the amount the lower rate you will get, without having to pay points.

I don't see them going much lower. Mortgage companies have a minimum profit number, it used to be at 1.75. We used to be able to estimate the next day rates by adding 1.75 to the 10 year treasury. Right now, using that formula, rates should be about 3.2% to 3.3%, which is where we are right now. While MBS's don't exactly follow the 10 year t-bill is pretty close.

That said, I have heard from my pricing department to expect some lowering, but nothing below 3.00% without points.

As a perspective, when I started originating loans, the rates were about 12.5%. Anything under 5% is amazing!

So you didn't have any fees other than appraisal? We are looking to refi and just checked with GMFS and they quoted us 3.25% for a 30 year with no points but the fees are $2100 for the GMFS fee and $1300 for the title company

correct. check out zillow; its a free service that looks up the best mortgage deals..and their reviews/ratings so you know you're not getting scammed.

these mortgage companies specialize is 'low ball' internet rates. you won't get the same rate if you just called them out of the blue.

in fact, northpointe's rate was actually higher when i filled out their form, the guy i worked with had to actually go in and put the correct rate in.

great site!

It is a "regular" 30 year condo mortgage. FHA never came up, I have plenty of equity.

Location is Arlington, VA.
