Subject to approval. APR = Annual Percentage Rate. Estimates below are based on a loan amount of $200,000 with 20% down payment (equity for refinance), prepaid finance charges of $2,900 and a credit score of 740. The actual rate available to you will be based upon your credit history and may be different than the rate disclosed. Rates are for the financing of a single-family primary residence with a 45-day lock. If the down payment/equity is less than 20%, mortgage insurance may be needed, which could increase the monthly payment and APR. Rates also may be higher for cash-out refinances above 70% Loan-to-Value, non-escrowed loans, loan amounts below $100,000 and/or loan amounts greater than $548,250. 30-Year Fixed = 360 monthly payments. 20-Year Fixed = 240 monthly payments. 15-Year Fixed = 180 monthly payments. Payment does not include taxes and insurance and actual payment obligation may be greater.
