* Data is compiled for the Grand Forks, ND commuting zone area, which comprises of counties of Marshall County, MN, Pennington County, MN, Polk County, MN, Red Lake County, MN, Grand Forks County, ND, Nelson County, ND, Steele County, ND, and Traill County, ND. This includes cities/towns/communities of Grand Forks, ND as well as East Grand Forks, MN, Thief River Falls, MN, Crookston, MN, Alvarado, MN, McIntosh, MN, Larimore, ND, Manvel, ND, Hillsboro, ND, Mayville, ND, Hatton, ND, Nielsville, MN, Fertile, MN, Northwood, ND, Stephen, MN, Lengby, MN, Lakota, ND, Galesburg, ND, St. Hilaire, MN, Holt, MN, Strandquist, MN, Red Lake Falls, MN, Oklee, MN, and Finley, ND. 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.
