Date : January 28, 2011

Beginning April 1, Fannie Mae will begin raising the adverse market delivery charge on all loans. This charge was created in 2008, due to changes in the real estate market. At that time borrowers with low credit scores were asked to pay additional fees while borrowers with higher scores were exempt.

Now, even “good” borrowers will start having to pay this new fee. If your credit score is above 740, you may be spending 0.25 percent more on your loan. Borrowers with scores between 720 and 740 are expected to see a 0.5 percent increase. The lower your credit score, the higher the fee, up to 3.25 percent.

With these potential increases, now is the time to lock in a great rate. At Sergio and Banks, our team of professionals can help you do just that.
