6:25 am
if you want to go with a lower interest rate, you are paying more fees. i don't even know what these were. michael: like most of us. look at these rates and fees. that is this the start. solidify mortgage advisors joseph rivera. >> contrary to popular belief every interest rate that a homebuyer ends up with or an individual refinancing a loan is pretty much custom-made or tailored to their specific situation. michael: when you read a mortgage rate that is an average or median rate. it is likely not what you will pay. >> the lender will evaluate what they consider the perceived risk. the higher the risk, the higher the interest rate and the higher the cost will be to the borrower. michael: that is something you can work with. you can actually control a little. here is how you can beat down the mortgage interest rate you will pay. a good credit score lowers your
6:26 am
mortgage rate. so does a smaller loan amount. a big down payment can drop the interest you will pay. your debt to income ratio, how much you owe versus how much you earn is very important. and often buying a single-family home over a condo will drop your interest rate. you cannot control what the federal reserve does or major banks, but you can control what you buy and how you buy it. each small tweak to your position potentially knocking down your interest rate an eighth of a point. and an eighth of a point here and there can really add up to significant change. >> it all depends but in general your concept is correct. all those things you can do to reduce the risk to the lender will be rewarded in the pricing. liz: that was michael finney reporting. he also mentions if you can
6:27 am
really work the situation and drop your interest rate by half or even 1% over 30 years, that turns out to be some real money. the important thing is get together with a good loan officer and go over all these little tweaks. still to come, renters protected from eviction have led landlords to sue alameda county. plus, sexual-harassment retaliation and a vote of no-confidence. details on the growing scandal at sonoma state university. ♪ my a1c stayed here, it needed to be here. ruby's a1c is down with rybelsus®. my a1c wasn't at goal, now i'm down with rybelsus®. mom's a1c is down with rybelsus®.
