Is Your Mortgage Lender Overcharging You? Know the Signs

A Reality Check on Mortgage Rates & Fees

Welcome to a reality check in the world of mortgage rates. With low housing inventory and higher interest rates, particularly in Colorado and Georgia, it's more important than ever to understand if you're being overcharged by your mortgage lender. As a seasoned industry professional, I'm here to help you identify the signs.

Transparency: A Non-Negotiable Factor

Transparency in mortgage rates is as necessary as a compass for a traveler. Concealed charges can disrupt your journey towards homeownership. I'm committed to offering a process that's as clear and straightforward as possible because knowledge is indeed power, right?

How to Spot Overcharging: The Red Flags

So, how do you tell if your mortgage lender is overcharging? Watch out for these red flags:

  • Hesitation: Does your lender stall when giving you rates or fees? That's a warning sign.

  • Lack of Clarity: Struggling to understand your lender's rates and fees? Another red flag.

  • Inconsistency: If the rates and fees seem to change mysteriously, that's yet another red flag.

Sound familiar? You might be dealing with an overcharging lender.
