Do you belong to a credit union? I would inquire with a credit union about rates 🙂

If you don’t have a credit union, you can check out http://www.lovemycreditunion.org and find local credit unions in your area. You may be eligible to join one. I did a quick search with the 20001 zip code http://www.asmarterchoice.org/Search_Results_128.html

Also, love my credit union has other discounts for credit union members. Good Luck!

We used a mortage broker to help us find the lowest rate. While you might not be paired with a large name bank, you’re going to get the best rate possible for your qualifications. I would see if you can find a broker in your area, that way they will pre-qual you, let you know your purchase limit and what you’re rate would be.

Not in your area, but Fiance and I are building a new home with a $330k purchase price and just locked in our rate at 3.875% (30 year fixed). We were tied to the builder’s mortgage company to get some incentives from the builder, so there were probably better rates to be had elsewhere.

Like a PP mentioned, I would find a mortgage broker you trust. When I was buying my current home back in 2012 my broker was really helpful. They aren’t tied to one lender so they can shop your rate for you. I ended up with Wells Fargo.

We just got our first mortgage in Boston, 4.125% – but DH’s credit score was only 690 (they take the lowest score into account) and we got a jumbo mortgage which I guess gets you a higher rate. We plan to refinance next year.

I’m not in your area, but I just bought a house this month through Fairway Independent Morgage and I have a 30 year fixed at 3.5%, but could have gone down to 3.4% if I wanted to spend an additional $400. It was a USDA loan though, so not sure how that affects rates. I think their highest rate was 3.7% with poor credit.
