Lbs Financial has an average approval rate when compared to the average across all lenders. They have a below average pick rate when compared to similar lenders. Lbs Financial is typically a low fee lender. (We use the term "fees" to include things like closing costs and other costs incurred by borrowers-- whether they are paid out of pocket or rolled into the loan.) They typically have relatively high rates.

We show data for every lender and do not change our ratings-- even if an organization is a paid advertiser. Our consensus data does have lag, but it is highly correlated to a lender's rates & fees relative to their markets. This means that if a bank is a low fee/rate lender the past-- chances are they are still one today. Our SimulatedRates™ use advanced statistical techniques to forecast different rates based on a lender's historical data.
