How We Make Money
The listings that appear on this page are from companies from which this website and the data provider may receive compensation, which may impact how, where and in what order products appear. Compensation is higher for featured placements. This table does not include all companies or all available products.
We may receive a fee if you click on a lender or submit a form on our website. This fee in no way affects the information or advice we provide. We maintain editorial independence to ensure that the recommendations and insights we provide are objective and unbiased.
The Lender Fees Worksheet a detailed breakdown of mortgage costs and expenses. Although the lender is not legally required to provide you with the fees worksheet, it should provide the document to you if requested. We recommend that you review the information outlined on the Fee Worksheet before you choose a lender and submit your loan application. The example below shows a $380,000 30 year fixed rate mortgage with an interest rate of 4.250%. The borrower pays $1,070 in lender fees and does not pay any discount points to lower his or her interest rate.
In this example, we show the mortgage closing on the 5th day of a month with 30 days so the borrower pays interest for 25 days (the borrower is required to pay interest from the day the mortgage closes until the end of the month in which the mortgage closes). In addition to a breakdown of other closing costs such as the appraisal fee, escrow fee and title insurance cost, estimated total monthly housing expense is also provided on the bottom right of the worksheet. This document can be used along with other disclosure documents to help you select the lender and loan that are right for you. Please note that this is an example Lender Fees Worksheet document and should be used for informational purposes only.
