Obama Got Sweetheart Deal on Home Loan

“He locked in an interest rate of 5.625 percent on the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage, below the average for such loans at the time in Chicago. The loan was unusually large, known in banker lingo as a ‘super super jumbo.’ Obama paid no origination fee or discount points, as some consumers do to reduce their interest rates. Compared with average terms offered at the time in Chicago, Obama’s rate could have saved him more than $300 per month.”
