Lending Tree has a new survey out showing that consumers will go out of their way to save $.10 on a gallon of gas before they will go to a mortgage rate comparison site on-line.
Quick thought: Most good mortgage lenders can do the same things that everyone else can do, so it’s really about finding the one you trust and get to know them. Whether you are rate-conscious, payment-conscious or closing cost-conscious, just talk to your trusted lender and agent. Chances are they can find the program that fits your needs. Second and third opinions will always one-up the first opinion but there may be other fees associated with that “better deal” and I’ve seen it happen on a number of occasions – many times when it is too late to change it in the process.
