MORTGAGE LOAN EDUCATION
LESSON 01: Building Confidence
Confidence is Your Greatest Asset
When it comes to obtaining a mortgage, confidence is your greatest asset. The mortgage process is often intentionally made confusing, which can leave borrowers feeling intimidated and reluctant to ask questions. But here’s the secret: Simple questions can lead to significant savings, potentially putting thousands of dollars back in your pocket.
At Mortgage Detectives, we believe in arming you with the knowledge and confidence needed to navigate the mortgage journey successfully. We’re here to demystify the process, ensuring you’re empowered to make informed decisions and secure the best possible terms. Don’t let confusion hold you back – you have the power to take control of your mortgage and your financial future.
LESSON 03: Closing Costs
The Truth About Closing Costs
Closing costs, often a mysterious component of your mortgage, are an additional revenue stream that lenders charge simply because they can. These costs, averaging over $1,500, are sometimes presented as necessary fees. But the reality is, they’re just another way for lenders to boost their income.
Loan officers might explain these costs as essential to the process, but don’t be fooled. Regardless of what they call them, these fees pad the lender’s bottom line. What’s more, your loan officer’s compensation remains the same, regardless of the costs or rates they provide. The federal government regulates their pay, ensuring it remains consistent, no matter your loan terms. So, there’s no need to fear asking them to waive these costs.
LESSON 02: Understanding Lender Profit
Cracking the Lender Profit Code
Ever wondered how lenders make their money? It’s not as straightforward as it may seem. At Mortgage Detectives, we’re here to shed light on the inner workings of the mortgage industry. Picture this: Different lenders offer different interest rates, each impacting their revenue. It’s a complex dance, but we’ve simplified it for you.
- 7% rate = $12,000 lender revenue
- 7.125% rate = $15,000 lender revenue
- 7.25% rate = $18,000 lender revenue
On average, lenders pocket around 3% of the loan amount, translating to over $15,000 in revenue. This knowledge is crucial when considering the bigger picture of closing costs.
LESSON 04: Leveraging Your Power
Your Loan Officer’s Dilemma
Here’s a little-known fact: Your loan officer is paid the exact same commission by their company, regardless of the costs or rates they offer you. Federal regulations ensure their compensation remains consistent, irrespective of the loan terms. So, what does that mean for you? You should never hesitate to ask them to waive certain costs.
At Mortgage Detectives, we’re here to help you understand your negotiating power. Most of the time, when you request a cost reduction or waiver, your loan officer will come back with a revised fee or lender credit to offset these costs. They might claim they need approval, but rest assured, the lender and loan officer are making thousands from your transaction. They’re willing to work with you to proceed with your loan, so feel confident in asking them to do so.
Remember, this process is a negotiation, and you have the right to advocate for your financial well-being. In over 95% of cases, loans are negotiated – but you’ll only get what you ask for. It’s a negotiation game, and the first person to flinch loses.
