Mortgage Market Interest Rates

Interest rates for mortgages can vary significantly from one borrower to the next based on the specific details of the transaction. Some of the main factors that affect the interest rate are credit score, down payment or loan-to-value, the type of mortgage, and how long the interest rate is locked.

The information below depicts average rates on a national level. These rates are not specific to BankSouth Mortgage but are provided to give a general idea of where rates are nationally for different loan types. This information is calculated from actual locked rates with customers across 35% of all mortgage transactions nationwide.

This is not a commitment to lend and does not guarantee the availability of any particular product or interest rate. Rates/terms illustrated in the chart may not be available through BankSouth Mortgage. Rates and information in this chart are powered by OBMMI™ (“Optimal Blue Mortgage Market Indices”). The OBMMI™ methodology takes the average rate of all appropriate interest rates locked through the Optimal Blue, LLC (“Optimal Blue”) product and pricing engine (“PPE”) on a given day. No adjustments to the rates that account for buy-up or buy-down decisions made by individuals are performed. These indices leverage data from Optimal Blue PPE lock requests (approximately 35% of all locks nationwide) aggregated daily and updated nightly with the previous day’s locks.

My experience with Brian Williams was great. He is professional, upfront, and knowledgeable. Brian provided me with great advice about my home loan and did not low ball me my loan is within my budget, he provided ideas towards the closing cost for my home purchase, and he was available to speak to within reason.

We were a bit nervous when we started looking for a house because this was our first house buying experience. But we were very lucky, first because we could meet a great realtor, and second because we could meet Brian through the realtor! To begin with, he's a very nice person - you can really tell from his voice and the way he speaks on the phone. Indeed, he's very professional, supportive and responsive. We often emailed him to ask questions, then he always replied quickly, and on top of that, he always called us to make sure to explain it thoroughly and avoid misunderstanding. Importantly, his program is really competitive, and we could have very nice rate. This is also because we believed his advice about the rate predication. Well, the issue is, he is the only lender that we know, so we can't really tell you how better he is compared with other lenders, but we believe he's the best! By any chance, if we plan to buy a new home in the future, Brian will be our first and only choice. We have no hesitation in recommending him for your lender!

We are so grateful that we had him as our mortgage agent. We were first-time home buyers (also from another country) and didn't know almost anything about the process, but he was so patient and helped us a lot with explaining anything whenever we had questions or concerns. He is really experienced, knows situations, and most importantly we really felt that he was lavish with help for us to make us successful home-buyer! Great person to work with!

Mr. Williams was by far the best mortgage loan officer I have ever worked with. His kind demeanour and deep understanding of the loan process along with his creative thinking are all qualities that not many professionals possess I will always reach out to Mr. Williams for any loan needs in the future and send all my friends his way

Another lender (First Horizon) had my mortgage for more than a month and a half. I received very little communication from them, and when I did reach out, I was simply told, "everything looks good." A week before my closing, they called me to deny my mortgage. I was a few days away from selling my home in Georgia and moving my family to Tennessee, and it was a 30 second phone call to say they can't help me. BankSouth and Brian Williams to the rescue! 8 days later, I was signing the closing papers. They saved our deal, but more importantly, helped my family from being in an incredibly rough spot. I can't thank Brian and BankSouth enough!

Brian has been an essential aspect of my home buying experience. As a first time homebuyer, Brian’s knowledge and advice made the experience less stressful - my husband and I knew we could rely on Brian to help us understand the mortgage processes. Brian was always available and made a point of checking in, even if that was on the weekend! The time he put into getting to know us, our needs, and providing information made such a positive impact on our experience. Brian’s enthusiasm and helpfulness far exceeded my expectations. You can easily tell from speaking with him that he loves what he does, a great quality anyone in the mortgage buying process should find essential. I cannot speak highly enough of Brian and his work - he should be anyone’s “go to” on all mortgage needs!

Thank you so much, Megan, for your incredibly kind words and the 5-star rating. I'm thrilled to hear how positive your experience was as a first-time homebuyer. It was a pleasure to guide you and Blair through the mortgage process and to be available for any questions you had. Your high praise means a lot to me. Thanks again for choosing me as your “go to” for all your mortgage needs. Be sure to get in touch if you need any more assistance in the future.

I have never worked with a loan officer that is so responsive. It’s as if he knows every single scenario that could potentially arise and he will tell me in advance to make sure I don’t make any mistakes and can be prepared to close. He has helped so much that I feel if he was not my loan officer this process of building a house would have been so much more difficult. I feel grateful that I found him. I feel like I got lucky.
Reply from Brian A. Williams
I'm truly humbled by your kind words, Afifa. It was my pleasure to guide you through the mortgage process. I appreciate your trust in me and in BankSouth Mortgage. Your satisfaction is my best reward. Thank you for your positive feedback and the perfect rating.

Fantastic service and experience! I discovered BankSouth after searching for the highest rated local banks. I saw Brian's name mentioned positively in many reviews, so I decided to give him a call. My situation was not normal and it presented a number of challenges that required ongoing investigation, great attention to detail and regular communication. Brian was diligent in his management of my refinance. The difference between my experience with him and other banks that I contacted prior was night and day. I couldn't get my previous bank to take calls or return calls or provide sounds advice. Brian was forthright and honest and didn't promise anything that he couldn't deliver. In the end, my difficult situation was handled timely and with relative ease. I can't thank him enough. I want to also thank Angie, who along with Brian, helped immensely to make a tough situation good. Thank you
Reply from Brian A. Williams
I am deeply humbled by your kind words, Robert. It was a pleasure to assist you through the refinancing process. Your situation was indeed a unique challenge, but it was our commitment to clear communication and thoroughness that saw us through. I can’t promise miracles, but I strive to give honest and accurate advice to my clients, and I'm glad to have been able to deliver promising results for you. Additionally, Angie also appreciates your mention. We pride ourselves on customer service and your feedback affirms our efforts. Your satisfaction is our biggest reward. Once again, thank you for choosing BankSouth Mortgage and trusting us with your refinancing needs. Your feedback is highly valuable, and it would be a pleasure to assist you again in the future.
