Mortgage Rates Omaha
Regional variations in mortgage rates are
minor, but they do play a part in making your mortgage costs either
rise or fall. The cost to obtain the same mortgage rate in Omaha, or
any location in Nebraska, will be less than the cost to obtain the same
mortgage rate in Wyoming or Minnesota, for example. Conversely, the
cost to obtain that mortgage rate in Omaha will be higher than in
states like Texas, Florida or New York.
A $200,000 mortgage loan on a house in Texas will pay the loan
broker $300 more than on a similar loan in Omaha at the same mortgage
rate. On the other end of the spectrum a $200,000 mortgage loan on a
house in Minnesota will pay the loan broker $300 less than the mortgage
loan in Omaha. Between the two extremes there is a $600 differential on
the same size mortgage loan. That six hundred dollars can affect
mortgage rates or at least the cost a consumer has to pay to obtain the
loan at the given mortgage rate.
Why the variation? The difference is based on collateral risk with
the states in the higher tiers being perceived as higher risk of
default over the states in the lower tiers. Omaha is in the middle.
Relative to the loan the adjustments are small .30 of a percent of the
loan value from one extreme to the other. But, it affects the cost of
the mortgage rate and it falls as a benefit or a detriment to the
consumer. Mortgage rates in Omaha are going to be less costly than in
the state with the 10,000 lakes, but more costly than in the longhorn
state. Check out our Mortgage
