Real Estate Glossary – Define Annual Percentage Rate

What is the definition of annual percentage rate.

What does APR mean?

define apr

Andrew Lippert: APR stands for Annual percentage rate, it has to do with the purchased price, the interest rate and the fees, some of the fees. It just has to do with some of the fees that the government especially mandates that we include in that APR in order to show people. When they’re purchasing real estate some people might call the mortgage rate 4.125% and attach a whole bunch of fees so you really have a 5% APR. You need to also pay attention to that APR when purchasing a new home.

Barry Mathis: That’s awesome. A lot of times that does trip people up. My understanding is a lot of times this causes problems at closing because they thought they’re getting a 4.125%% APR and next thing you know they’re getting a 5% annual percentage rate because that includes the fees.

Hope you enjoyed the first of our real estate glossary terms.

Sales Is The Great Equalizer

It doesn’t matter if you’re male or female, black or white, handicapped, fat, ugly or stupid. If you can sell anything you consider to be a handicap can be overcome by the fact that you can sell, that you can move product out the door.

Show Notes: RTRE Episode 157 Closing The Pay Gap, Women In Real Estate

Barry Mathis Sacramento Real Estate AgentToday, 10/11/14 at ten a.m. PT, don’t forget to tune in to me, Barry Mathis, on our weekly broadcast, “Real Talk on Real Estate,” on channel 1380AM The Answer on your radio dial! Or on your computer at week we’ll be featuring a real go-getter, one of the top women out there in the field of #realestate in the #sacramentoarea: Ms. Rachel Adams. As a partner in the Aitchison-Adams Real Estate Team of Keller Williams Realty in Roseville, she spreads her wings wide to encompass all of Sacramento and #PlacerCounty, including #ElDoradoHills, #Folsom,#Rocklin, #GraniteBay, #ElkGrove, and even on out into Napa and Lafayette. And let me tell you, this gal knows her stuff. She utilizes all the tech tools at her disposal, and through those communicates with each client at such a personal level they’re left with the happy illusion that they’re her “one-and-only.” Integrity (which as you know is big with me,) resonates strongly with her as well.

Keller Williams Real Estate AgentA few words from Rachel :
“I love to sit down with clients and get to know them, and see exactly what they are looking for in a home. I send them houses that match exactly their style, and find them the perfect one!

“When it comes to sellers, I can figure out exactly what their home is worth, and negotiate to get them the highest and best offer. I keep them in the loop the entire time. Communication is big with me.

“I am aggressive in my approach of finding clients a place to call home, selling their home, and working with investors, but thoughtful of what they need at all times.

“Real Relationships. Real Results.”

Listen to her at ten this morning. Then, reach her at 916-284-7864, on Facebook at, Twitter at, her company website at, or simply old-fashioned email at You can thank me later.

Also, we’ll be showcasing our newest website to assist probate attorneys in Sacramento CA. You can preview it at We’ll be doing our first real estate glossary term as well so make sure to tune in.
