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 Wyoming by mortgage amount, according to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).

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.
