Generate a Loan Worksheet with Fees, Costs, Cash to Close and Payment ONLINE NOW

If this calculator is being used in Northern Ohio most if not all of the Cost Estimates in boxes 3-11 should be left to auto calculate.   In Box 1 you may wish to change the Misc Origination Fees (Processing, Document Prep, Underwriting and Verifications) In general my Misc Fees are $961.90.  Depending on your loan type this number might be higher than it needs to be.  Generally for Ohio mortgages, these charges are greater than $1,000 and I have seen them as high as $1,500 and even heard of some above $2,000.  In many cases the Misc Fees represent a lenders fixed costs associated with a loan request.  Other lenders will have a higher misc fee telling you that you will pay no points.   Part of the logic or benefit of the New GFE Format is all Origination Fees, Discount Points and Misc Fees are presented as one total.  Regardless of the name or title this assist borrowers in comparing quotes.  Please feel free to contact me if you want an to know my Total Origination Fees against another Lenders.   I may not always have the best priced loan for you, however in many cases I will.  Make a call and see if I can save you money.

If you want to compare different rate & Closing Cost options, you may wish to use this Break Even Calculator, It allows you to compare different Rate & Closing Cost options based upon how long you expect to have the mortgage.  

The Shaded fields should be changed based upon your transaction.  Some or the other fees can be changed if needed. 

Please add any lender Origination Fees, Discount Points, Processing and Underwriting Fees to this calculator.
