Wyndham Capital Mortgage provides initial rate information online when you click on “Online Rate Quote” and enter details. You can see rates by answering questions about the following:
- Whether you want a purchase or refinance loan

- Property value (if refinancing)

When you’re comparing mortgage rates, it’s important to keep in mind the difference between interest rate and APR. (Wyndham Capital shows both.) The interest rate is the cost of borrowing, while the APR includes interest plus other fees associated with the loan, so it better reflects total costs. Both are expressed as annual percentages of the amount borrowed.
Also, note the difference between a fixed- and adjustable-rate mortgage. Because rates have been rising in 2022, we’re likely to see more interest in adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs), which start with an initial period of a relatively low fixed rate before resetting. When rates are lower, fixed-rate options tend to be the safer way to go — if you start with a low rate, you might not want to risk your rate increasing over time.
In 2021, Wyndham Capital’s average home purchase rate was 0.12% below the national average. Over the past three years, it’s remained close to the average nationally.
