Broker Fees
Broker Fees: Joe and his team, as both Bankers and Brokers negotiates fees on a case by case basis because not all customer situations are identical. What is right for one, may be wrong for another. 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: The industry standard origination fee is 1%, which can be show on the GFE as a closing cost, or worked into the interest rate at the customers descretion.

Lender Fees: 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. Our estimates will clear show these items.

Appraisal Fee: Ranges between $0-$500 depending on loan type and size of home, but average $350. 

Yield Spread Premium: This tool, if used, is discussed and disclosed by us. The customer has the option to use the Yield Spread (increase the interest rate) 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. The vast majority of customers elect to use a combination of the two.
