Average savings over the life of a loan

To find the total interest cost on the average loan, we use the Optimal Blue® Mortgage Market Indices (one of the most widely used market averages) from January 1st 2021 to December 31st 2021 to determine the national average interest rate on the same day as our comparison loan was secured from the Own Up® marketplace.

We use that national average interest rate to determine the total interest cost of the average loan secured in 2021 at Own Up of $304,450. Interest can vary based on many factors, so we limited the analyses to 30 year conventional mortgages in 2021 but did not normalize for other factors that can influence rate (e.g., credit score, state, property type).

It pays to shop for the right loan. Whether buying or refinancing, our customers save an average of $27k over the life of their loan.
