How to Use This Site
The biggest mistake borrowers make is focusing on the lowest rate when they should be looking for the best rate. There’s a difference. The best rate is the one that entails the least cost of borrowing. It factors in the upfront interest cost, all fees and closing costs, the penalty for breaking the mortgage early, portability privileges, refinance restrictions, prepayment rights, the option to borrow more before maturity, flexibility to blend the rate, rate conversion features and so on.
Before settling on any mortgage you see here, remember that contract flexibility can save you far more than a small rate difference. Pick up the phone or email the mortgage provider and have them compare their rate against the competition. Smart spies know the devil is in the fine print.
