1Rate 7.378% with an APR of 7.536% as of 4/15/2024 10:21 AM EDT. The APR calculation is based on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage in the amount of $240,000 for the purchase of a single-family, primary residence with 80% loan-to-value (LTV) or 20% down payment, minimum borrower credit score of 740, and estimated points of 1% of the loan amount, and origination fee of $1,295 with 360 monthly payments in the amount of $1,658. Payment amount does not include taxes and insurance which means your monthly obligation will be greater. Actual payment amount will vary based upon credit history, rates in effect at the time of consummation, LTV and other credit factors. A LTV ratio above 80% may result in a need for mortgage insurance. If mortgage insurance is required, the amount of your payment will increase. The APR is subject to change at any time prior to consummation, and individual APRs may vary for loan purchases and loan refinances due to loan programs being offered, loan volume, or other factors. All borrowers are subject to qualification, underwriting approval, lender terms and conditions. Terms, conditions, and rates are subject to change without notice.  

Consolidation or refinancing debt may increase the time and/or the finance charges/total loan amount required to repay debt. The amount of the cash-out refinance is based on the current equity in your home and can vary. No minimum cash out amount required.

Programs for qualified borrowers. All borrowers are subject to credit approval, underwriting approval, and product requirements, including loan to value, credit score limits, and other lender terms and conditions. Fees and charges may vary by state and are subject to change without notice. Some restrictions may apply. Not a commitment to lend. A loan advisor will review and provide you with the terms, conditions, disclosures, and additional details on the interest rates that apply to your individual situation.
