The New Year is almost upon us. In a couple of days we’ll be staring up to the sky witnessing the explosion of colorful fireworks, while reminiscing the good days this 2011. But with a New Year comes new things, and what better way to start the year than to buy that home you’ve been planning on for years.

If you feel that it’s time to purchase your first home, or relocate to a bigger house, then one of the things you must do is find a reliable mortgage provider with low interest rates. Thank your lucky stars, because Ever Bank is offering some pretty good rates for their mortgages. Below are some of their rates:

Ever Bank’s Mortgage Rates:

30 year Fixed – 3.974%
15 year Fixed – 3.421%
5/1 ARM – 3.248%

How These Rates Compare

One of the best ways to assess the competitiveness of a mortgage provider is by comparing their rates to the national average. As of today (December 27), the national average for 30 year fixed mortgage rates is at 4.12% which is higher than Ever Bank’s rates. Aside from that, the national average for 15 year fixed mortgage is at 3.77% which is again higher than Ever Bank’s rates. However, past data shows that on December 23, the rates were 3.91% and 3.21% for the 30 year FRM and 15 year FRM respectively.

Ever Bank’s rates are competitive today, and may continue to be so if the mortgage trend is going up. However, these rates are already good enough to lock into also considering the reputation of the bank who is offering it.
