Interest rates have become more complex to quote.  The variables that will impact the available rates are as follows: whether the transaction is a purchase or refinance; rental or owner occupied; conventional mortgage; conventional insured;  high ratio; the loan-to-value ratio; credit score; verifiable income; the amortization, and/or the timing of the completion date. The interest rate landscape is dynamic and constantly changing. Different lenders can specialize discounting different terms.
