Today is Friday, January 23, 2009 and here are this morning’s average mortgage rates.
Mortgage rates are still down at historic lows. Several things go into determining what mortgage rate you’ll qualify for, but here are some general rates for Friday, January 23, 2009 (as of 10:40 am) that can get you started. Below the rates you’ll see a short
explanation of the assumptions we make to give you these rates. The assumptions may not apply to everyone and are merely a way for us to offer rates based on an average person’s situation.
Remember, many factors affect the mortgage rate you may qualify for, including credit score, income, debt, and home value.

For these rates, we make a few assumptions, including: Mortgage rates could change daily. Actual payments will vary based on your individual situation and current rates. Some products may not be available in all states. Lending services may not be available in all
areas. Some restrictions may apply. Based on the purchase/refinance of a primary residence. We assumed (unless otherwise noted) that: closing costs are paid out of pocket; this is your primary residence and is a single family home; debt-to-income ratio is less than 30%; and credit score is over 720. The lock period for your rate is 45 days. If LTV > 80% PMI will be added to your monthly mortgage payment.
Please remember that we don’t have all your information. Therefore, the rate and payment results you see from this calculator may not reflect your actual situation. Quicken Loans offers over a hundred loan products. You may still qualify for a loan even if your situation
doesn’t match our assumptions.
Those are our rates for this morning.
We’ll post new rates (they may or may not change – it really depends on the financial markets) later today. Have a wonderful day!
