The property’s location, loan amount, loan type, occupancy type, property type, loan-to-value ratio, and credit score are a few variables that could affect the rate, points, and APR. Your actual rate and points may be higher or lower than those listed depending on information about these factors that is only accessible after you apply.

“Climbing mortgage rates continue to put pressure on the housing market, pushing the cost of homeownership ever higher,” said Hannah Jones, Economic Data Analyst at “There has been little relief for American consumers at the grocery store, the pump, and in both the for-sale and rental markets.”

To decide how much interest you’ll pay and if your rate might fluctuate in the future, you can pick between a fixed-rate mortgage and an adjustable-rate mortgage. A fixed-rate mortgage’s interest rate is fixed for the duration of the loan. If you had a 30-year mortgage, the interest rate you pay today and in 30 years would be the same. An adjustable-rate mortgage, or ARM, has rates and monthly payments that are initially fixed before fluctuating on a regular basis.
