* Data is compiled for the Lexington, NE commuting zone area, which comprises of counties of Dawson County, NE, Frontier County, NE, Furnas County, NE, Gosper County, NE, Harlan County, NE, and Phelps County, NE. This includes cities/towns/communities of Lexington, NE as well as Holdrege, NE, Gothenburg, NE, Cozad, NE, Cambridge, NE, Alma, NE, Bertrand, NE, Elwood, NE, Overton, NE, Farnam, NE, Curtis, NE, and Willow Island, NE. Lenders must have made at least 30 loans in the area to be included. Source for the data comes from Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC). Rate Difference (the average difference of interest rates relative to those of other lenders) were computed by subtracting the rate at origination from the average predicted rate based on the MSA, borrower LTV, DTI, Loan Amount, Loan Type, and Loan Purpose, and then regularized based on a Bayesian approach to account for smaller sample sizes. Above-average mortgage closing costs were then added to the rate difference at a rate of +0.15/point. Star ratings were determined in intervals of 0.10% in rate difference per half star.
