FFIEC Rate Spread Calculator

IF THE LOAN APPLICATION DATE IS BEFORE OCTOBER 1, 2009 AND THE ACTION TAKEN DATE IS BEFORE JANUARY 1, 2010 USE THE OLD CALCULATOR.

As of January 1, 2016, Freddie Mac no longer publishes the Primary Mortgage Market Survey (PMMS) result for the 1-year ARM. For the APORs effective on 1/11/2016 and later, the rates will continue to be calculated using the Freddie Mac PMMS data for 30-year FRM, 15-year FRM and 5-year ARM. In addition, the APOR calculation will use estimated 1-year ARM data obtained using the same survey and calculation techniques, although the official PMMS no longer publishes the 1-year product.

The rate spread calculator generates the spread between the Annual Percentage Rate (APR) and a survey-based estimate of APRs currently offered on prime mortgage loans of a comparable type utilizing the “Average Prime Offer Rates” fixed or adjustable table, action taken, amortization type, lock-in date, APR, fixed term (loan maturity) or variable term (initial fixed-rate period), and lien status. Rate spread is a calculated field and is NOT simply the APR on the loan application.

A batch rate spread calculator is also available to allow institutions to calculate the rate spread on multiple Loan Application Registers (LARs).

NOTE: Do not use the rate spread calculator to calculate the HOEPA status; they are two different fields which require two different calculations. See Help for more details.
