Mortgage Data

Review & Overview

Affinity Plus is a smaller mortgage company specializing in Home Improvement, Other, and Home Purchase loans. Affinity Plus has a high proportion of conventional loans. Their top markets by origination volume include: Minneapolis, Grand Rapids, Duluth, Rochester, and Bemidji among others. We have data for 34 markets. (Some data included below & more in-depth data is available with an active subscription.)

Affinity Plus 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. Affinity Plus is typically an average 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.
