Your credit score affects the rate you’ll get

Interest rates vary by lender

Interest rates are affected by the economy and the federal funds rate, or the rate that banks charge each other for overnight loans. But they’re also affected by individual lenders, which can have differing overhead costs, profit margins and credit score requirements.

Research ahead of time to get the best rates

Some ways to get the most competitive interest rate on your home loan in Indiana:

  1. Compare loan products. Lenders may charge different interest rates depending on the loan program. Learn what loan products you qualify for and compare interest rates.
  2. Amp up your borrowing profile. Lenders give the best mortgage rates to creditworthy borrowers. Take some time to raise your credit score and check for errors in your credit report before applying for a loan.
  3. Consider closing costs. Some lenders issue lower interest rates in exchange for racking up the closing costs. You can expect closing costs in Indiana to be between 1.00% to 1.99% of the home purchase price. Weigh lender fees and interest rates together to make sure you’re getting the best deal.
  4. Get preapproved. Lenders run your credit during preapproval to give you an estimated rate and a maximum loan amount that they are willing to lend you. Multiple credit checks count as a single inquiry if it occurs within a 45-day window. Shop around and get multiple preapprovals within this time frame to find the best loan terms.
