All right mark what's next. All right so cracked we've got to we got five states -- five yes I states we get a better deal on your mortgage. Right -- act. -- Rhode Island an average guy interest rates 3.4 percent. As of July on average Connecticut 3.4 one about a 3.4 six Pennsylvania 3.5 -- Maryland 3.5 nine the highest work. Nebraska. On at four point one known we'll say South Dakota and Wyoming just under four point four point eight so why. -- -- Over half -- percent difference in interest rates yet. Craig waters some of the things now folks say assailants UP go oh my gosh -- -- Rhode Island to get a better on the mortgage well just like anything. It it's the details that are important and there are several details Greg you can opine on -- I -- as to why. Getting a better deal on a mortgage in that Rhode Island is not necessarily true so Mythbusters time Craig ms. Madoff dust flip to Bob hey a lot of the first. Off renegade on the cover this mortgage backed security bond trading is what dictates that mortgage rates are going to be there's very little differentiation from state to state in some cases. There can be very very -- in our means like pricing and changes from Wednesday to another. And we're talking about at the very most and eight of a percent of interest on at the just the right date usually. Coast to coast north south east and west it's all the same fervor by so what's happening here -- tell you that first of all. Many states have higher propensity to pay buy down their rate with points in -- The I think this doesn't tell us in this article is what the average term of the mortgages and what the size alone in his. Folks if you're a small midwestern town. There's a couple things here hopefully -- in a -- and that's by your rate down with points and number two you're not gonna get. A loan that it may be slightly down a little bit lower because your -- so much made a lenders making a little more profit. So I can tell you that there is not a big difference in the rates from state to state but I can't tell you that the way people go about doing their mortgages does make a difference and in fact. Oftentimes is the states they can brag that they get the lowest average rate that -- -- the worst average deal desert paints a much more in fees and costs and points at they're not recovering before they -- -- to get -- letter to something else. So don't fall for this because it's not true that's right the average cost associate -- these these mortgages are based on a couple things as Craig mentioned one is. They're higher average loan amounts and two is they are paying more in fees and while if you take the term of the loan of thirty years and say oh. They saved half percent in if we compare day same month mortgage amount they would save that money that's how they saved 20000 dollars of our -- -- over the thirty year mortgage. There are gonna be in the house thirty years and turn -- -- mortgage thirty years so while it's interesting to report. It is a bogus it is article anyway myth myth that you can save money get your mortgage and now Rhode Island no offense Rhode Island a million hole -- the same deal there in Nebraska -- did all right folks you another installment of life John thanks for hanging out -- does have a -- fantastic rest of the weekend and a great week. Remember to left. -- --
