Compare before you buy
You always hear this when you are buying an appliance, a car or even real estate. But make sure you do the same when you go for your mortgage. I always advise my clients to shop around before they decide on a company to write their mortgage. You may find that between lenders there are different fee costs and even interest rates. Not all loans are created equal and it could be in your best interest to shop around. And you do not need all of them to run your credit, just ask what the fees are up front. Dare to Compare.
