It's Pretty Simple: Low Overhead + Low Margins = Low Rates!

Over 21 years ago, after working for large banks and mortgage banking companies, I figured out how to operate a mortgage company utilizing a business model which allows us to offer ultra-low interest rates for our clients. As the owner I personally control our pricing model which keeps our rates generally .25+ lower than the competition with the same fees and costs!

The Difference Between Wholesale and Retail Mortgage Rates

Mortgage Quest a dba of McCormick Lending Group, Inc. Wholesale Vs. Retail Mortgage Rates Explained We work with several banks. mortgage wholesalers and mortgage bankers that allow us to shop rates for our clients.  Being that we do all of the processing for these sources we receive Wholesale Rates which are always discounted from Retail Rates (rates offered from bank branches, direct mortgage lenders, servicers etc.). There can be a large variance (both positive and negative) between lenders on a daily basis on the Wholesale Rate as they compete for market share.  Thus, being that we have several sources to choose from for our client we always have aggressive rate options. Once we close a loan for our client the loan is then serviced by the bank, lender or servicing company.  At times they have a Retail division that may solicit the client or make it seem that they can streamline the mortgage process as they currently have the loan in their servicing department.  But, wit
