Congratulations. What about closing costs? Is that the APR including closing costs?

Re: July 2021 Closers Thread




Loan cost very low from Better - just $550 for appraisal and $50 for the credit report . So my 2.62 APR with closing cost on my 30yr is 2.64


I want to thank this board for helping me get my score up via AZEO!  WIth maximizing my score (had hoped for a MMS of 760 but didn't make it)


I started with a local mortgage company who quoted me 3.25  and then received quotes from 5 companies  Took that best rate to the most aggressive company - they lowered - then took that lower rate with the LE as evidence to the two I was interested in working with.  I had a plan from the beginning to make the best use of my Credit pull window.  I also was upfront with all of them that I was shopping for the best deal - rates and fees.

Possible issues - The market here is crazy so there's the appraisal issue. That being said, we were able to negotiate a price below asking since the home has been on the market longer than others, so we're hoping this helps. The appraisal was completed yesterday so we're waiting on findings. Also, the home inspection is Saturday -- fingers crossed that goes well, the home was built in the 40s. Finally, I'll probably worry about the final approval until we're done, so there's that. The loan processor says we're fine, but she's not in underwriting so...
