Choosing the right mortgage broker to refinance your California mortgage can save you time, money, and aggravation. Mortgage brokers have extensive contacts in the mortgage industry and can often provide access to loan offers you wouldn’t find on your own. The problem with using a mortgage broker is that most are paid by commission and the mortgage that gives your broker the largest commission probably isn’t the right loan for you. Here are several tips to help you avoid paying too much when refinancing your California mortgage with a broker.
When shopping for a mortgage broker you need to find a broker that knowledgeable, honest, and willing to work with you. Most importantly, you need a mortgage broker that will not charge you Yield Spread Premium. This markup of your mortgage interest rate serves only to boost the mortgage broker’s commission. During the first discussion you have with a potential mortgage broker, tell the broker you understand Yield Spread Premium and will not accept a mortgage that includes this markup. Tell your broker that you will pay all necessary closing costs and a reasonable origination fee for their services, but will not tolerate lender paid compensation.
Finding the right broker to refinance your California mortgage means choosing one that will provide you the necessary guidance, information, and loan offers that are right for your situation. If your broker seems hesitant to answer questions or return phone calls you should concentrate on finding a broker that will.
