  • Interest rates are not one size fits all. Rates are different for each client. Some of the variables include – credit score, loan to value, loan amount, occupancy, property type, loan term, how long the rate is locked for, discount points paid, among many others.
  • One of the biggest indicators of rate is time. Rates move all day every day, just like the stock market. Over the last couple of months, we have seen this be more the case than historically.
