Where to Get the Best Mortgage Rate

by Osman Parvez
A lot of people are asking me who has the best mortgage rate. Time to invoke the wisdom of the crowds.

If you've recently refinanced or taken a new mortgage, or if you plan to do so in the near future, please leave a comment with the following:
Principal: (The amount financed, i.e., $375,000)

Rate and Structure:
(i.e., 4.9% fixed, 30 year, conventional)

Fees and Points:
(i.e., $500 closing fee, 1 point or $3,750)

Estimated Loan to Value:
(i.e., 75%)

Date Closed:
(i.e., 12/15/2009 or "next week")

Property Location and Type
: (i.e., Boulder, primary residence, single family home)

(i.e., Wells Fargo)

(If you recommend the person, go ahead and provide a name and number)

(i.e., "Jane was the nicest, most straight forward lender I interviewed and she had the lowest rate by far!")
Naturally, we have a list of lenders we often send clients to, but rates and programs change all the time. Bottom line: Mortgages are a commodity and you have to shop around to get the best deal. I look forward to your comments.
