OK so we switched to a 5% down conventional loan, paying the PMI insurance up front. From our previous 3.5% scenario we are saving about $300/month.

Asked by Andrew Thompson, Union, NJ Tue Oct 29, 2013

Current mortgage interest rate is 4.2% but bank is charging us 4.5% citing credit score of 689. Does this make sense?

It appears that you could do better that the rate they are quoting you now. My company would need to also know the loan amount and type of house, as well as settlement date. But from what you are saying, you should be able to get a better interest rate.

Best of luck. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions. Thanks.
