Contract With Client
Steve employs the standard UMB contract with borrowers which identifies his fixed mark up over wholesale rates.
Technology Employed
United Mortgage Financial Group uses an online application process which clients can use to fill out their application at their convenience. The status of applications is available on-line at all times, and documents can be signed digitally on-line. Clients who have completed their application and elect to “float” the rate are kept informed continuously on changes in the market via an exclusive market-watch service.
Locking Procedures
Steve locks loans to refinance upon receipt of the completed application, plus other items that have been requested from the client. Purchase loans are locked on the day the purchase contract is signed, provided the client has already provided the information required for a pre-approval used to support the purchase. Steve offers a Rate Float-Down Option. For ¼ point paid in cash when the loan is locked, Steve agrees to drop the mortgage rate by .125% if the 1-year Treasury bond yield drops by .15% or more, and by .25% if the bond yield drops by .3% or more. If the mortgage rate is not changed under this provision, Steve will credit your ¼ point fee back to you at closing
Third Party Fees
United Mortgage Financial Group guarantees lender, broker and third-party closing costs on the day that the rate is locked. If any of these costs at closing are higher than those shown on the good faith estimate given to the borrower at the time the rate lock is confirmed, the company will pay the difference.
Broker Fees
Broker Fees: United Mortgage Financial Group negotiates fees on a case by case basis. Some of the criteria that go into the determination of our fees are: Loan Amount, Credit History, Documentation Type, Borrower Participation, and Closing Time Frame. Typical Fees are as follows:

Origination Fee: Negotiated on Case By Case Basis 

Processing Fee: $495 which includes credit report, Fed Ex fees to get loan package to the lender and payment of loan processor and transaction coordinator.

Lender Fees: Wholesale lenders charge a fee to underwrite the file, prepare the loan docs and fund the loan. This also includes the tax service fee and the flood certification fee.

Appraisal Fee: Ranges between $250-$500 depending on type and size of home. Customers are free to shop for their own appraiser. We can recommend a trustworthy company if the customer wishes.

Yield Spread Premium: The spread that the bank pays us to deliver a certain rate to the customer. This fee is always disclosed by United Mortgage Financial Group, Inc. and the customer has the option to use the Yield Spread to pay for the origination fee to keep up-front costs lower. This is worked out on a case by case basis with the customer to determine if it makes more sense to pay the origination fee, the Yield Spread Premium fee or a combination of the two.
