Other Costs/Prepaids, etc: $2,700
Total Closing Cost: $6,100
Interest Rate: 3.0%

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Hi there,

I am no judge of the current cost of lending, but... that seems like a great deal of money to pay to get $93,900 in your pocket. Nearly 6.5%

Do you have any other options?

To be fair, that's a one time cost. The real cost is amortized over the term of the agreement.

Mathematically, it looks good. Practically... what do you need the money for? $39k is so close to being paid off, I don't think I could stomach going back into debt no matter how low the interest rate is.

3.0 seems high for a 15 year term. Lenderfi is offering me 2.375 plus a lender credit.
