Staten Island Board of Realtors (SIBOR) encourages consumers to do their homework before signing on the dotted line
A mortgage — whether it’s a home purchase, a refinancing, or a home equity loan — is a product, just like a car, so the price and terms may be negotiable.
You’ll want to compare all the costs involved in obtaining a mortgage.
Shopping, comparing, and negotiating may save you thousands of dollars.
The Federal Trade Commission advises that you remember to:
- Obtain Information from Several Lenders
- Obtain All Important Cost Information
- Obtain The Best Deal That You Can
- Shop, Compare, Negotiate
