We are in the middle to low end on our fees. The one think I decided to do was never add a bunch of smaller fees for every little thing we do. Many years ago when I was buying tires for my car, the final bill was $60 more than the estimate. I was told that the extra cost was for the stems on the tire. When I asked if I could get the tires without the stems, of course the answer was no. It made me mad that something I wouldn’t have thought to be an ‘extra’ was charged as an extra add-on. Last week a loan officer was surprised that we don’t charge sellers anything additional for getting mortgage payoffs. Well, that’s part of the settlement fee. You can’t sell a house without getting the mortgage payoff, so it’s not an ‘extra’ service. Our fees may not be the lowest, but clients get more services without paying extra.
