There are roughly 800 different mls's in the country with about 300 that connect with zillow/trulia. For the remaining 500 mls's the agent would have to manually post it to zillow/trulia or use a 3rd party service to post it here. If your agent doesn't know how to get the listing posted here have them talk to their broker or office admin about how to post to zillow/trulia. ... more

Hi Anne,

The interest rate is, simply, the actual rate of interest that is charged on the principle balance of your loan.

APR, on the other hand, is a calculation that was originally designed to help consumers understand the cost of the loan, inclusive of interest and certain costs associated with closing. A problem lies in the fact that APR is easily manipulated by inexperienced or unethical lenders, and can be easily misunderstood by consumers.

Many items are included in the calculation of the APR such as interim interest and mortgage insurance, which have nothing to do with the interest rates and closing costs charged by the lender. Due to some of these defects in the calculation, using only the APR to compare lenders is not always reliable.

For a more detailed explanation of APR, including example calculations, please see:

Best, Steve
