Help the community by answering this question:


Congratulations on buying a new home!
I will assume you did go through with it...

Check out current rates and programs in different banks, not just the one you purchased through.
Then, refinance, if it makes sense financially.

When comparing rates, make sure you are comparing apples to apples:
1) Ask for the note rate (rate you'll be paying)
2) APR - Annual Percent Rate - that rate includes your closing costs.
When choosing by rate - APR should be the lowest you can get.
3) Ask what your closing costs would be - and get them in writing
4) Ask what the process is to lock your rate (until it's locked, it could change)

Hope this helps,

The truth is, we cannot answer your question without additional information.

I understand that the sales price is $850,000, but to answer your question specifically with meaningful answers and numbers, we need to know HOW MUCH THE LOAN IS FOR and WHAT TERM ( 30yrs, 15 yrs,etc.)


Does that payment include taxes and insurance? If it does we would need to know how much of that payment is taxes and insurance.

Without that information, we can only guess or try to promote other programs that may not have any bearing on what it is that you are trying to do.

I would be happy to discuss with you right away.

It all depends on the neighborhood. The best person to talk to first is a Mortgage Broker. Then ask a realtor to prepare comparables for the neighborhood. If you don't have access to either, please contact me at jmay@Metro1Properties.com

Have a great Evening.
