Little Known Ways To Good Faith Estimate

Sep 8, 2008
You will be extremely delighted to move over to the closing room. You would be ready with all the required documents and the amount. There are certain steps you need to take care before the closing process.

You have to compare with the checklist suggesting what all you need to do before walking into the closing room. You will have a good faith estimate in your hand. This will give you a clear picture of how much amount you need to have at the time of closing.

Good faith Estimate will be handed over to you within the three days of loan application. You have to go through line-by-line all the estimates provided in the good faith estimate. There can be some mistakes, which need to be corrected. You have to do very careful calculations, which can help you to avoid mistakes in good faith estimate.

The good faith estimate contains mainly three figures. They are loan fees, the points and the interest rate. You have to put good efforts to verify these three elements.

I am sure you will be weary about the various kinds of fees the lenders usually charge. These fees include loan processing fee, document preparation fee, registration fee, appraisal fee and many other kinds of fees. You have to verify each and every fee in the good faith estimate, discuss with the lender, and ask for reductions. You can ask the lender to fore go some of the fees.

In practice, the lender put many arguments telling that the fess he quoted are all normal charges and these are in accordance with the company policy. He will also argue that these are the possible minimum charges in the real estate field. If the good faith estimate keeps the amount required in closing as $750, when you go to the closing table it could jump to $2000. This is a usual scene nowadays in the closing table.

Usually lender will assure you to fix the interest rates and the points so that you will proceed with him for the loan. Instead if he locks the lender's fees, that will be beneficial for you. In practice the processing fee can go from $50 to $250 from the time of loan application to loan closing. These are the day to day expenses, which are necessarily to be paid.

Make sure that you speak with the lender to see that all fees he quoted are really required or not. When you consistently ask about the fees, the loan officer will surely adjust many fees for you. These types of approaches only will help you to get a perfect good faith estimate.

Once you finalized the good faith estimate, get the details of the fees involved in writing. This will ensure smooth closing process without any surprises.
