* Data is compiled for the Durango, CO commuting zone area, which comprises of counties of Archuleta County, CO, La Plata County, CO, and San Juan County, CO. This includes cities/towns/communities of Durango, CO as well as Pagosa Springs, CO, Bayfield, CO, Ignacio, CO, Silverton, CO, and Arboles, CO. 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.
