Refinancing Advice Look Carefully

by No Points For This Homeowner

Ask Kate: Refinancing Advice Look Carefully Kate, Hopefully someone will benefit by my refinancing advice - I'm glad $8000 of closing costs caught my attention. My guy, as I call my mortgage consultant, called me about refinancing.


I already had a pretty low rate but I indulged him by giving him some of my time. Long story short, he suggested refinancing my home to lower the mortgage rate. However, the closing costs were costing points and me a fortune!

Turned out the mortgage closing costs were to the sum of $8,000. Yeah, I was glad I looked into it further.

My refinancing advice, make sure you know exactly what you are getting before you sign that dotted line.
