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

Follow three key steps to qualifying for a better rate on — and better prepare for — your next mortgage:

  1. Compare loan programs. Lenders typically offer different loan programs with varying rates and eligibility. Research each product to learn whether you can qualify for a government-backed loan.
  2. Become a credit superstar. Take time to pay down outstanding debt for the chance to bump up your credit score. Lenders offer lower rates to borrowers with strong credit.
  3. Account for closing costs. Some lenders advertise lower mortgage rates while upping their closing costs. Expect to see closing costs about 1.33% to 1.78% of a home’s purchase price in Nevada. Weigh closing costs against your loan’s rate when shopping around to make an informed decision.
