* Data is compiled for the Goldsboro, NC commuting zone area, which comprises of counties of Duplin County, NC, Sampson County, NC, and Wayne County, NC. This includes cities/towns/communities of Goldsboro, NC as well as Pikeville, NC, Clinton, NC, Walnut Creek, NC, Mar-Mac, NC, Plain View, NC, Beulaville, NC, Newton Grove, NC, Keener, NC, Roseboro, NC, Bonnetsville, NC, Greenevers, NC, Wallace, NC, Seven Springs, NC, Mount Olive, NC, Elroy, NC, Kenansville, NC, Spiveys Corner, NC, Ingold, NC, Warsaw, NC, Fremont, NC, Brogden, NC, Rose Hill, NC, Mount Olive, NC, Faison, NC, Garland, NC, and Magnolia, NC. 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.
