This Friday, defying the standard market movement, the North Carolina based mortgage provider, Branch Banking and Trust Corp (NYSE: BBT), did make some decent improvements to its benchmark 30 year fixed mortgage interest rates. As per the mortgage charts released by the bank on May 16, 2014, the standard home purchase and ideal refinancing deals are coming out at somewhat better interest rates as compared to the yesterday’s figures.To start with, in the standard, long term home loan division, the bank is offering its 30 year fixed rate mortgage home loans are at an interest rate 4.000% and are providing an annual percentage rate of 4.573%. In the relatively short term lending section, 15 year fixed rate mortgage home loans are up for grabs for the interested customers at a lending rate of 3.125% and an annual return rate of 3.715% this Friday.

In the exclusive home lending zone, the borrowers, who are unwilling to lock their finances for a period of 30 years and aren’t satisfied by the rates of 15 year offerings, can spot the mid-term, 20 year fixed rate mortgage loans listed at a lending rate 3.750% and being backed by an APR yield of 4.309% today.
