Mortgage Rates, Explained

Mortgage rates in Delaware vary and depend on individual and broad economic factors. You can expect that state or local rates can differ with national rates, although the latter is a good starting point when you shop for purchase or refinance loans.

For example, a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage has a different rate from that of a 15-year fixed-rate mortgage and a 5/1 hybrid adjustable-rate mortgage. The 30-year rate is usually higher than the 15-year FRM and the 5/1 ARM plan. It also has a higher interest costs overall but the monthly payments are very low.

A conventional loan also has a rate different from that of an FHA, USDA or a VA loan. Government loans cater to lower-income households so their rates are kept low. Conventional loans conforming to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac are priced based on credit scores and loan-to-value ratios.

Purchase and refinance loans are based on the same rates but lower rates matter more when refinancing to reduce monthly payments. That explains refinance booms when rates are dropping.

When inquiring about a loan on this site, this is not a loan application. This is not an offer to lend and we are not affiliated with your current mortgage servicer.

When applying for a loan, lenders will commonly require you to provide a valid social security number and submit to a credit check. Consumers who do not have the minimum acceptable credit required by the lender are unlikely to be approved. Minimum credit ratings may vary according to lender and loan product. In the event that you do not qualify for a credit rating based on the required minimum credit rating, a lender may or may not introduce you to a credit counseling service or credit improvement company who may or may not be able to assist you with improving your credit for a fee. Any loan product that a lender may offer you will carry fees or costs including closing costs, origination points, and/or refinancing fees. In many instances, fees or costs can amount to several thousand dollars and can be due upon the origination of the loan product.
