* Data is compiled for the Peoria, IL commuting zone area, which comprises of counties of Logan County, IL, Marshall County, IL, Mason County, IL, Peoria County, IL, Tazewell County, IL, and Woodford County, IL. This includes cities/towns/communities of Peoria, IL as well as East Peoria, IL, Morton, IL, Pekin, IL, Washington, IL, Brimfield, IL, Lincoln, IL, Germantown Hills, IL, Chillicothe, IL, Peoria Heights, IL, Bartonville, IL, Bellevue, IL, Deer Creek, IL, Lake Camelot, IL, Metamora, IL, Panola, IL, Elmwood, IL, Green Valley, IL, Hopedale, IL, Eureka, IL, Kingston Mines, IL, Goodfield, IL, Princeville, IL, Roanoke, IL, Benson, IL, Peoria Heights, IL, Lacon, IL, Latham, IL, Varna, IL, Forest City, IL, Washburn, IL, Henry, IL, Hopewell, IL, Cornland, IL, Washburn, IL, Havana, IL, Emden, IL, Topeka, IL, Mason City, IL, Bath, IL, and San Jose, IL. Lenders must have made at least 30 loans in the area to be included. Source of the data is Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC). Rate Difference (the average difference of interest rates relative to those of other lenders) were computed by subtracting the rate at origination from the average predicted rate conditional on the commuting zone, borrower LTV, DTI, Loan Amount, Loan Type, and Loan Purpose, and then regularized based on a Bayesian approach to account for smaller sample sizes. Above-average mortgage closing costs were then added to the rate difference at a rate of +0.15/point. Star ratings were determined in intervals of 0.10% in rate difference per half star.
