As a Lender with a big bank i would say your Loan Officer is correct by disclosing all the fees associated with the loan, until he is certain as to who is paying what via the contract. We always show the very worst case scenario then get the initial HUD-1 from the title company and then we would re-disclosed on the loan via a new GFE.

There are Lenders who do not show the fees and tell you its third party fees with no regards to the fact that you have to come out of pocket for any fees not included in the contract. So your Lender is right to disclose and get re-disclosed based on the final contract.

I would be delighted to provide you with some mortgage options, (this does not require us pulling your credit) that will allow you to make the best decision for your family. I can be contacted via my profile information for a no obligation consultation. My Office hours are 08:00 AM-08:00 PM Mon-Fri and Fri and Sat 08:00 AM-06:00 PM CST.

Pricing your home requires a room by room evaluation which can only be done by visiting your home and carefully documenting all the upgrades that have been done and then comparing your home to the homes that have SOLD in your neighborhood. Selecting the right agent is key in marketing your home to get you the most money in the shortest period of time.

Interviewing 3 agents will help you get a better understand as to what your home could sell for.

Please feel free to call me directly with any questions.

You need to have a title search done for any outstanding liens (which you could inherit). If the property is in a New Jersey Lake Community or part of a development with a homeowners association check with the association to see if there are any unpaid dues or assessments. In New Jersey these associations do not need to publically file the liens, but they are still valid and must be paid. ... more
