What Is A Mortgage Rate?
A mortgage rate is the interest rate on your home loan. There are many factors that go into deciding what your interest rate will be when securing a mortgage including inflation, the Federal Reserve, the yield on the 10 year treasury note, your credit score and the mortgage company’s specific fees.
How is the Interest Rate Different from the Annual Percentage Rate (APR)?
The interest rate is the rate on the loan itself and does not take into account closing costs. The APR is the interest rate with the closing costs or closing credits accounted in it. The APR provides a more “apple-to-apples” comparison across loans, as long as the same types of costs are included in each home loan.
