Is a 4.8% rate with 729 credit considered good?

I was kind of hoping i'd get lower. Like I said 729 credit, 3.5% down FHA 30 yr fixed... 4.8%!!

FHA rates generally are a little lower than that. Are you sure you are looking at the interest rate and not the APR? Rates on FHA for the best scenarios are way under that quote of 4.8%, which makes me think you are looking at the APR and not the actual interest rate.

Assuming you are otherwise qualified, you should be in the high 3s for rate. I'm local here in Tempe if you want another quote. Just call me at 480-376-2191.

Based on the little info provided, I'd expect your rate to be at least 1% lower.

Yes, I agree with everyone on here, should be in the high 3's. Sounds like you are dealing with a bank and being quoted a retail rate. I am a mortgage broker with access to many wholesale lenders and much lower rates. If I can help, please let me know. Thanks, and take care. 480-241-2632

Rates for FHA financing are much lower but without reviewing your file it is not accurate to say why you are being quoted a rate of 4.875%.
