Our offer on a house in Illinois was accepted and hoping to close in 30 days. The bank we had used for the pre-approval is now offering us only 2 options, 7 year Arm at 3.95% or 30 year fixed at 4.5% with .25% lender credit for closing costs. When asked about a rate without the credit, they said it was still 4.5%. Does this sound right ? This will be a jumbo loan with 20% down. Can anyone recommend other lenders in Illinois and do we even have time to shop around now.

That does sound right. The spread between rate increments sometimes has large differences in revenue between each .125%. There is likely a wide swath between 4.5% and 4.375% that would trigger a large fee if you want to drop to 4.375%.

Have you asked about a 10-year ARM? That 30 year fixed looks pretty good in light of today's rates, is it a recent quote?
