We want this to be a “win-win” situation and only want to get paid if we bring you value in the form of finding a personal finance option that works for you, not by selling your data to multiple lenders. Generally, our lenders pay us at the time of receiving your loan application and incorporate the cost of our services as part of the final interest rate on your loan, or in your loan amount. Although we are paid at the time of your application transmission, you only pay this cost if your loan closes. This fee is non-refundable to lenders after they receive your application. This is common practice in mortgage transactions where lenders pay brokers for performing certain services in connection with your loan. If you would prefer to minimize your rate, you may opt to buy "points" to decrease your rate. If you choose to buy points, you would pay this amount to your lender and your final interest rate on your loan or your loan amount would reflect the combined fees of points you purchased and the fee your lender paid us upon receipt of your application.

Refinance rates by loan term
Home refinance rates rise and fall on a daily basis with changing economic conditions, central bank policy decisions, and investor sentiment. The table below shows recent trends in home refinance rates.
General Information and Rate Disclosures:
The listings that appear on this page are from companies that pay Credible compensation. This table does not include all companies or all available products. Displayed information is valid as of Feb 27, 2024 and assumes a customer with a 740 credit score borrowing a conventional loan for a single-family, primary residence, at or near zero discount points, and a 80% loan-to-home-value ratio. For products indicated as a jumbo (e.g. 30-year fixed jumbo rate), displayed information follows the same assumptions as a conventional loan but set at loan above the conforming limit.
Here is an example of your payment based on a $300,000 loan amount, for each advertised loan term:
*Payments do not include amounts for taxes and insurance premiums, your actual payment obligation will be greater.

Rates, payments, and all information displayed are for informational purposes only and are subject to change without notice. This is not a credit decision or commitment to lend. Mortgage rates and terms you may qualify for depend on your individual financial circumstances.
All monthly payment amounts above assume on time monthly payments each month for the full duration of the loan term (e.g. 360 monthly payments for a 30 year loan). Displayed monthly payment amounts do not include amounts for property taxes and hazard insurance. Your actual monthly payment obligation will be higher. Amounts for borrower-paid mortgage insurance premiums are included in the monthly payment if (1) the loan amount is below the “conforming thresholds” set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and (2) the loan-to-home-value ratio is greater than 80%; mortgage insurance premiums are excluded from the monthly payment if either the loan amount is above the conforming thresholds or the loan-to-home-value ratio is less than or equal to 80%. Your actual payment obligation may be higher. “Conforming thresholds” depend on the county where the property is located.
The fee amounts shown above include estimates of loan costs and closing costs you may pay in connection with a mortgage transaction with the assumptions above. This includes fees the lender charges, including points and underwriting fees, and third party services the lender does not let you shop for such as a flood certification fee. It does not include title charges, recording costs, prepaids, initial escrow deposit, and other fees.
Variable rate products, such as ARMs, have interest rates that can change over the life of the loan. Changes in the interest rate will cause required payment amounts to change.” The displayed rate and payment will be in effect for the number of years in the product’s description (e.g. 5/1 ARM means the initial rate and payment are in effect for 5 years, 7/1 means they are in effect for 7 years, etc.), after which the rate and monthly payment will change every 12 months.
Last updated on Feb 27, 2024. These rates are based on the assumptions shown here. Actual rates may vary.

- Property details: Type of home (single-family, condo, etc.) and use of home (primary residence, second home, investment property)
- Loan-to-value (LTV) ratio
- Loan type (conventional, FHA, VA, etc.)
- Lender (each one offers different rates, and comparison shopping can help you find the best ones)
- Credit score
- Debt-to-income ratio (DTI)
- The Federal Reserve’s federal funds rate
- The global, political, and economic climate
- 10-year U.S. Treasury yields
- Mortgage-backed security yields
- The unemployment rate
- Loan-to-value (LTV) ratio: If you’ve been required to pay mortgage insurance premiums, you’ll often be able to get rid of them when you refinance, if your LTV ratio is 80% or lower — in other words, if your equity is 20% or higher.
- Loan type: A conventional loan will often be less expensive than an FHA loan because you won’t have to pay up-front mortgage insurance or monthly mortgage insurance premiums. If you qualify for a VA loan, it may be worth applying for both conventional and VA loans to see which one offers you the best value.
- Lender: Applying for the same loan on the same day with at least three to five lenders will allow you to accurately compare interest rates and closing costs from each one and see which lender offers the best deal to someone with your financial profile.
- Credit score: Getting your credit score in tip-top shape by making all your payments on time and reducing your credit utilization ratio is an important part of getting a lender’s best mortgage rates. Your score is considered a reflection of your ability and willingness to repay debts.
- Debt-to-income ratio (DTI): It can be challenging to make a significant dent in your debts or a meaningful increase in your income within a short time, but the lower your DTI, the lower your rate and the more you may qualify to borrow.
- Predict your monthly principal and interest payments. No matter how high or low rates go after you close on your loan, you’ll have certainty about your mortgage payment amount.
- Know your total loan cost. You can multiply your monthly payment by 360 to learn your total interest and principal obligations over the life of the loan. Subtract the principal (the initial loan amount) from that total to find out how much interest you’ll end up paying over 30 years if you keep the loan for the entire term.
- Keep your monthly payments down. Stretching out your principal payments over three decades will give you a lower monthly payment even though your interest rate might be 0.5 to 1 percentage point higher compared to a 15-year loan.
- No way to benefit from rate drops without refinancing. If you think interest rates will be substantially lower in the future, you might want to get an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) instead of a fixed-rate one. If rates do drop, this could give you lower monthly payments for a time without your needing to refinance.
- Total interest will be more in the long run. With a higher rate and twice as many years of payments, you’ll pay much more in interest with a 30-year loan compared to a 15-year loan.
- You want the lowest possible monthly payment. While a 15-year fixed-rate refinance would be less expensive in the long run because you’d pay less interest, it would have a higher monthly payment than a 30-year mortgage since you’d be repaying the loan principal in half the time.
- You want the stability of an interest rate that won’t change. You could also take 30 years to pay off your home with a 5/1 adjustable-rate mortgage, but the changing rate in years six through 30 would make your monthly payments (and the total cost of your mortgage) somewhat unpredictable.
- You don’t qualify for a shorter term. Since a shorter loan term increases your monthly payment, you’ll need a higher income and/or less debt to qualify. A 30-year mortgage can be easier to get approved for. Test the waters with a mortgage pre-approval.
