Mortgage rates in Oklahoma
Interest rates on a 30-year $300,000 conventional mortgage start at around 3.125%
If you have a credit score between 700 and 719 and can put 5% down, you’ll generally pay about 3.250% for a 30-year conventional loan with a fixed interest rate on a $350,000 home. But how much interest you pay for your Oklahoma home will depend on several factors, including your credit score, loan amount and lender.
Rates were last checked on October 6 and are from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) website.
Your credit score affects the rate you’ll get
People with higher credit scores generally get lower interest rates because lenders assume they’re less likely to stop paying a mortgage. Here are the most common interest rates in Oklahoma by mortgage amount, according to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).
|Credit score||$200,000 mortgage||$300,000 mortgage||$400,000 mortgage||$500,000 mortgage|
*Based on a 10% down payment for a 30-year fixed-rate conventional mortgage
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.

Interest rates also vary by loan type
The type of loan you get can also affect how much you pay for your Oklahoma home. 15-year mortgages generally offer lower interest rates than 30-year mortgages, and you’ll see different rates for conventional loans than government loans.
|Loan type||$200,000 mortgage||$300,000 mortgage||$400,000 mortgage||$500,000 mortgage|
|15-year FHA||2.563%||2.375%||Not elegible||Not elegible|
|30-year FHA||3.000%||3.000%||Not elegible||Not elegible|
*Based on a 10% down payment, fixed interest rate and 710 credit score

- Compare loan programs. Most lenders in Oklahoma offer products and programs beyond the conventional loan. And rates often vary between lenders.
- Make your credit work for you. Borrowers with strong credit and low debt-to-income ratios are more likely to qualify for a low rate. Taking time to pay down your existing debt can increase your credit score, positioning you for stronger rates and terms.
- Plan for lenders closing costs. Lenders in Oklahoma charge 1.51% to 3.02% of the sale price of your home at closing. Some lenders offer lower interest rates in exchange for higher closing costs. Weigh your total costs against the interest rate to know the full cost of your loan.
