Compare current mortgage rates

The more lenders you check out when shopping for mortgage rates, the more likely you are to get a lower interest rate. Getting a lower interest rate could save you hundreds of dollars over a year of mortgage payments — and thousands of dollars over the life of the mortgage.

With NerdWallet’s easy-to-use mortgage rate tool, you can compare current home loan interest rates — whether you’re a first-time homebuyer looking at 30-year fixed mortgage rates or a longtime homeowner comparing refinance mortgage rates.

Find personalized mortgage rates

NerdWallet’s mortgage rate tool can help you find competitive mortgage rates. Specify the property’s ZIP code and indicate whether you’re buying or refinancing. After clicking "Get Started," you’ll be asked the home’s price or value, the size of the down payment or current loan balance, and the range of your credit score. You’ll be on your way to getting a personalized rate quote, without providing personal information. From there, you can start the process to get preapproved for your home loan. It’s that easy.
