Calculating the Fully Indexed Rate
The fully indexed rate is the sum of the value of the applicable index and the mortgage margin, which is then rounded to the nearest one-eighth percent.
The applicable index value that determines the fully indexed rate is the lowest value in effect during the 90 days that precede the date of the mortgage or deed of trust note.
The maximum yield difference may be restricted for certain ARM plans submitted as whole loan deliveries. The maximum yield difference is the amount by which the net note rate in effect for the mortgage at the time the loan is delivered to Fannie Mae can be less than Fannie Mae’s required yield.
