Applying for refi mortgage - online OK?

Hi Again
Hopefully this is my last question for awhile as I absorb all the information here.  Is it better to apply for mortgages online or locally?  I have heard that if you apply online it can hurt your score more.  Just don't know where I can get the best deal.  My EQ & TU are both is 650 range - hope to get somewhat higher in the next month or so.  Would love to get some cash out to add on to house, but am not too sure if I will be able to do that or not yet.
Thanks!  Lynn

Where did you hear that? Totally false. In terms of scoring, it makes no difference where or how you apply.
