How is this estimate calculated?

We take the information you provide about your location, project scope, remodel and finish types and determine the average costs for labor and materials in your neighborhood. We then add an additional 20% to cover the cost of contractors. The data is compiled from top builder trade publications that use national government databases. It's updated once or twice a year based on market conditions.

Annual percentage rate (APR) represents the true yearly cost of your loan, including any fees or costs in addition to the actual interest you pay to the lender. The APR may be increased after the closing date for adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) loans.

Conforming fixed-rate estimated monthly payment and APR example: A $464,000 loan amount with a 30-year term at an interest rate of 6.500% with a down payment of 25% and no discount points purchased would result in an estimated monthly principal and interest payment of $2,933 over the full term of the loan with an annual percentage rate (APR) of 6.667%.

Estimated monthly payment and APR calculation are based on a down payment of 25% and borrower-paid finance charges of 0.862% of the base loan amount. If the down payment is less than 20%, mortgage insurance may be required, which could increase the monthly payment and the APR. Estimated monthly payment does not include amounts for taxes and insurance premiums and the actual payment obligation will be greater.
