Please visit this website to see the costs (None of which are paid to the Broker) associated with purchasing a home in New York City. You can also receive an Instant Online Rate Quote to compare to others.
I cannot speak for all Mortgage Brokers. I can only speak for myself. As a Mortgage Broker (On Staten Island) and former Accountant, I am very careful about how borrowers spend their money. We work with several Banks and are paid a fixed % of the loan directly from the Bank we send the loan to. The Bank we choose is dependent upon the needs of the borrower.
Use the "Instant Rate quote" feature on the website below to compare to other lenders.
"I am a Mortgage Banker in TX on an average brokers will charge 1-3% based on the level of difficulty or as Bankers we charge a flat fee to process & underwrite the loan(less than $1K) and make money by servicing or selling the loan on the secondary market "
This is a complete lie or at best a misrepresentation of the facts. You should not trust ANYONE, broker or banker that will twist the facts in order to make themselves more appealing. What a broker charges has NOTHING to do with the level of difficulty and is regulated by the SAFE act. The actual truth is that what banks charge you is mostly hidden in SRP because that is not realized until your loan is sold. This is no way means you are getting a better deal with a banker and in many cases means the opposite.
Compare quotes side by side and ones given on the same day. Don't try to compare fee to fee because they have different names and amounts. Compare interest rate loan amount and cost to close excluding interest and prepaids. This is the only way to know what you are really paying.
Avoid BS from BSers!
