Third, MAKE CORRECT COMPARISONS. When looking


at estimates, don’t simply look at the bottom line. You absolutely must compare lender fees to lender fees, as these are the only ones that the lender controls. Make sure lender fees are not “hidden” down amongst the title or state fees. A lender is responsible for quoting other fees involved with a mortgage loan, but since they are third party fees – they are often under-quoted up front by a lender to make their bottom line appear lower, since they know that many consumers are not educated to NOT simply look at the bottom line! APR? Easily manipulated as well, and worthless as a tool of comparison.


Fourth, UNDERSTAND THAT INTEREST RATES AND CLOSING


COSTS GO HAND-IN-HAND. This means that you can have any interest rate that you want, but you may pay more in costs if the rate is lower than the norm. On the other hand, you can pay discounted fees, reduced fees, or even no fees at all, but understand that this comes at the expense of a higher interest rate. Either of these balances might be right for you, or perhaps somewhere in between. It all depends on what your financial goals are. A professional lender will be able to offer the best advice and options, in terms of the balance between interest rate and closing costs, that correctly fit your personal goals.


Fifth, UNDERSTAND THAT INTEREST RATES CAN CHANGE


DAILY, EVEN HOURLY. This means that if you are comparing lender rates and fees, this is a


moving target on an hourly basis. For example, if you have two lenders that you just can’t decide between, and want a quote from each, you must get this quote at the exact same time, on the exact same day with the exact same terms, or it will not be an accurate comparison. You also must know the length of the lock you are looking for, since longer rate locks typically have slightly higher rates.


Again, our advice to you is to be smart. Ask questions. Get answers.
