Do you know the factors that influence loan rates? If you do, your search for the best mortgage will be much easier. Economic trends play a significant role in the way mortgage interest rates move. So the rate you’re offered might depend on these factors:

  • The amount you borrow. Borrowing only up to 80% of the new home’s value is more likely to get you a better rate.
  • How you’re perceived as a credit risk. If you can show a responsible credit history, you’ll likely be offered a better rate than someone with a history of credit usage problems.
  • The maturity term you choose. Shorter maturity terms usually offer better rates than those with longer terms.
