CHARLOTTE, N.C., Sept. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- LendingTree®, the nation's leading online loan marketplace, today released its monthly Mortgage Offers Report, which analyzes data from actual loan terms offered to borrowers on LendingTree.com by lenders on LendingTree's network. The purpose of the report is to empower consumers by providing additional information on how their credit profile affects their loan prospects.

  • August's best offers for borrowers with the best profiles (the 95th percentile of borrowers) had an average APR of 4.32% for conforming 30-year fixed purchase loans, up from 4.31% in July. Refinance loan offers were unchanged at 4.35%. We consider people with the best credit profiles those who received the best mortgage offers through the LendingTree marketplace, which allows users to compare offers from multiple mortgage lenders.
  • Mortgage rates vary depending upon parameters including credit score, loan-to-value, income and property type.
  • For the average borrower, purchase APRs for conforming 30-year fixed loans offered on LendingTree's platform was 4.99%, unchanged from the previous month. The loan note rate of 4.87% is the lowest since April. We prefer to emphasize the APR, as lenders often make changes to other fees in response to changing interest rates.
  • Consumers with the highest credit scores (760+, representing the 65th percentile of borrowers) were offered APRs of 4.84%, versus 5.13% for consumers with scores of 680-719. At an average purchase loan amount of $230,645, the APR spread of 29 bps between these score ranges represents almost $15,000 in additional costs over 30 years for borrowers with lower credit scores. The additional costs are due to higher interest rates, larger fees or a combination of the two.
  • Refinance APRs for conforming 30-year fixed loans were unchanged at 4.98% for the average borrower. The credit score bracket spread widened 1 bps, to 23 bps, amounting to just over $12,000 in extra costs over the life of the loan for lower-credit-score borrowers, given an average refinance loan of $239,517.
  • Average proposed purchase down payments were down about $1,000, to $56,933.

Each week LendingTree also releases its Mortgage Rate Competition Index and Mortgage Savings Tracker. The LendingTree Mortgage Rate Competition Index is a new measure of the dispersion in mortgage pricing. Built on top of the Mortgage Rate Competition Index, the Mortgage Savings Tracker brings transparency to mortgage shopping by highlighting the significant savings that are available to potential borrowers for both purchase mortgages and refinancing. This week's report found that homebuyers could have seen median lifetime savings of $30,329 in interest on a $300,000 loan by comparison shopping for the best mortgage rates last week.

About the Report

The LendingTree Mortgage Offers Report contains data from actual loan terms offered to borrowers on LendingTree.com by lenders. We believe it is an important addition to standard industry surveys and reports on mortgage rates. Most quoted industry rates are for a hypothetical borrower with prime credit who makes a 20% down payment. Most borrowers do not fit this profile. Our report includes the average quoted APR by credit score, together with the average down payment and other metrics described below. We stratify by credit score, so borrowers have added information on how their credit profile affects their loan prospects. The report covers conforming 30-yr fixed loans for both purchase and refinance.

  • APR: Actual APR offers to borrowers on our platform
  • Down Payment: Though analogous to the LTV, we find that borrowers identify more closely with the down payment. Academic studies have also found that the down payment is the primary concern for homebuyers and one of the main impediments to entering the homebuying market.
  • Loan Amount: The average loan amount borrowers are offered
  • LTV: Actual LTV offered to borrowers on our platform
  • Lifetime Interest Paid: This is the total cost a borrower incurs for the loan, inclusive of fees.
