Where can I find a 5yr fixed with a start rate between a 1 or 2 percent and with a full rate between a 6 or 7 percent?

Wow! You know what you are looking for... so first of all, congrats on doing your financial homework (you are in the minority of consumers of financial products, unfortunately).

What you are looking for is a pay option ARM. 1% - 2% percent on the Negative amortization payment is possible, but a fully indexed rate between 6% - 7% is not out there currently.

The only place that could possibly offer something like this is World Savings because they're a portfolio lender. I also know that Quicken Loans is pushing hard on Pay Option Arms these days as well.

The Latest on Mortgage Rates

No surprise that mortgage rates fluctuate. If you are thinking about purchasing a home or maybe considering refinancing your current mortgage, then you want to be up to date on mortgage rates.

Mortgage rates April 10, 2024
According to Freddie Mac, the 30-year mortgage rate for the week of April 10, 2024 is 6.88%. This represents a 6 basis points increase from the previous week's rate.
Note: A basis point is equal to one-hundredth of one percent (0.01%). In numerical terms, if the mortgage rate changes by 20 basis points, it means the rate has changed by 0.20%.
According to Freddie Mac, the 15-year mortgage rate for April 10, 2024 is 6.16%. This is a 10 basis points increase from last week’s rates.

What does the mortgage rate mean for you?
Mortgage rates play a vital role in determining your monthly payment. Let's take a look at the avergage interest rates (APR) for April 14, 2024 based on Zillow data for borrowers with a high credit score (680-740) in the United States:

  • For a 30-year conventional loan, the interest rate is 7.09%.
  • If you opt for a 15-year conventional loan, the interest rate stands at 6.29%.
    Using the rates mentioned above, a $279,082 30-year-year mortgage would result in a monthly payment of $1,874. On the other hand, a 15-year mortgage would require a monthly payment of approximately $2,399.
