It depends on the particular investor your loan officer is looking at.  Lenders structure their ratesheets and incentivize certain rates/rebates based on your qualifications.  If your loan officer is amenable, ask to see a ratesheet and for an explanation of how the final rate is determined.  There are many factors to consider in order to see what the point will actually "buy," but it's not too hard to figure out.

It varies daily, but normally... .25% - .375% is the spread...  it used to be dead on .25% for years... The major changes in the mortgage world over the last 6 months have had much to do with mortgage pricing and how we see it, get it and deliver it to you.  Good luck.
