Using a local mortgage broker, offer on house in NH is $195k w/ 5% down. All clear so far, and figured I would just get some feeback on the rate. Which is 3.5% for 30 years.
My latest TransUnion on myFICO dated 12/02/2012 is 804. My wife's 801. The broker saw slightly higher scores, like 807 or something.
3.5% a good rate?

before end of Jan is the goal, real estate agent put "Jan 28th or sooner" on the offer.
Considering I'm only putting 5% down, I fig 3.5% is in line, but always worth an opinion or two

Confucious.... lol.... who's that?
Get busy with the facts
No zodiacs or almanacs
No maniacs in polyester slacks
Just the facts
Gonna kick some gluteus max
It's a parallax... you dig?
You move around
The small gets big
It's a rig
It's action... reaction
So who's afraid
Of a little abstraction?
Can't get no satisfaction
From the facts?
You better run, homeboy
That's a fact from Nome to Rome

with only $990 in lender fees, 3.5% is a smokin' deal....

Locked it in on Monday
Had the option to go 3.375%, but no lender credit. Gonna need a few things, so $2k back at closing will come in handy.
Thanks everyone, and Happy New Year!!!
