13 Billion Dollar Shopping Cost

At Indigo Mortgage, we always urge our clients to shop around for their mortgage loans, and for good reason. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), the federal governing agency responsible for consumer financial protection, just conducted a national survey and found that only 50% of consumers bothered to shop around and research their mortgage loan. Those consumers who did not shop around ended up having to pay $13 billion in fees, fees that could have been avoided.

According to the CFPB’s findings, borrowers took their first offer from a large institutional lender, internet lender, or a national bank. “Consumers put great thought into the choice of a home, but the mortgage process continues to be intimidating” says CFPB Director Richard Cordray, “Shopping for a loan can save big dollars in the long run.”

Rates can vary as much as ½ a percent from one lender to the next, and even at the same rate, the closing costs can vary by several thousand dollars. Don’t assume that your lender is going to give you the best deal. At Indigo Mortgage, we believe that an educated borrower can save themselves thousands of dollars by making an informed choice. If you have any questions about your mortgage loan, call Indigo Mortgage, we will be happy to answer your questions and show you the important elements of loan proposals, so you can save money!
