Best place to check rate?

Can someone recommend the best place to check the rate I am being offered to make sure that it's good? For USDA/FHA loans? MyFico has something built in but maybe there is something better elsewhere.

Review what others have been offered recently and provide the specifics of your situation & what you are being offered.  USDA & FHA rates should be pretty similar to each other, usually within .125%.

4.875 as of last week, 100% financing USDA, about a 250,000 loan. Credit score 675. Was trying to get it above 680, but it doesn't look like it is going to happen by application time, I paid down my utilization from 50% to 25% and got little love from FICO for it. :smileysad:

 

It was 4.55 when I applied for pre-approval a month and a half ago.

When we pre-approved in April it was 3.5% - didn't find a house. 

 

Found a house in JUly and had to go through the process again, locked the rate in July 27th at 4.625%.  It looks like the only way those rates are going is up!

I was quoted 4.25% FHA last Wednesday and the LO said the rates just went up which is true if you check bankrate average (went up from 4.35 to 4.5 and over).
