Discretionary Rate

A preferable mortgage rate that is not disclosed to a borrower up front.

Banks and credit unions often use discretionary pricing models to maximize profit. In practice, such lenders advertise higher rates and then lower them based on a customer’s:

  • application characteristics
  • negotiating skill, and
  • business with that institution.
