Condo Mortgage Rates
Buying a condo can mean homeownership with fewer maintenance headaches. And amenities — like fitness facilities, a pool and spa; perhaps even a cafe. While condo mortgage terms are often different than terms on single-family home loans, you’ll still want to shop for the best interest rate.
The NerdWallet condo mortgage rate tool returns customized interest rate offers in just seconds.
What are the differences between a mortgage on a condo and a house?
Because condo values are primarily based on the property as a whole, not just your unit, condo mortgage approval relies on your creditworthiness and the condo’s qualifications, too. That can include the value and condition of amenities, the homeownership association’s budget and financial stability — even the percentage of space dedicated to nonresidential purposes.
Another condo loan wrinkle: The lender will determine if the HOA or developer has any pending litigation against it that might impact the future value of the property.
How do mortgage rates on condos compare to mortgages on houses?
Condo mortgage rates are typically a little higher than on single-family homes. It’s a matter of the lender pricing in the risk of community-living structures. There are simply a lot of things that impact the value of the property that are out of the control of a single-unit owner.
