Can You Explain Basis Rate?

In this video I interview Evangeline Scott of Big Valley Mortgage.

I asked Evangeline, “When we talk about home loans, we hear about basis rate. Can you explain this?”

Evangeline states…

“You can not lock into a loan until it is contract because when you lock a loan it is tied to the home address and you the borrower.

Today we look at:

  • Credit from the lender based on interest rate.
  • Base rate or par with no cost to you.
  • Buy down of the interest rate.

Some banks charge a flat origination fee and some don’t.

Remember when talking a percentage cost for getting a loan, we are looking at the loan amount and not the purchase price.”

If you have any questions about basis rates or any loan programs, please feel free to call us.
