Is a FREE Appraisal Really FREE?

 

I had a past client call me to let me know that he was in the middle of a refinance with another lender but he was uncomfortable.


While I never like to hear that one of my clients went elsewhere, I am always grateful when they need the right advice and return to me!   He asked that I review the loan estimate the lender had provided and let me know that they told him they would give him a free appraisal.  I told him that I would be happy to let him know if it was a good loan for him or not.

 

After reviewing the loan estimate, I found that not only was I able to provide an interest rate that was almost 1/2% lower (saving more than $60/mo on the monthly payment they quoted), I was able to do the loan for more than $6000 less in fees.  

 

$SIX THOUSAND LESS!

 

When I let him know, he asked what I needed from him to move forward.   

 

In this case, that FREE Appraisal certainly was not FREE!   I am so glad that this client paid attention to his gut feeling and reached out.  My guess is that he won't look elsewhere again!

 

While we are not always (or even usually) this much less than other lenders, we are always competitive and we work hard to make sure that you are confident that we are working in your best interest.
