I have checked with my bank, a mortgage broker, and another lender about getting a zero down %100 financing mortgage with no PMI. I have a better than average FICA score, and have a very low debt to income ratio. The best interest rate for a 30yr %100 financed fixed mortgage I rcvd was 7.5 (with lowest closing fees)
My friends and family insist I’m getting screwed over and should be getting a low 6 interest rate.
My question is should I expect a low interest rate when I have no money saved for closing, and no down payment? Does my rate sound normal for high my situation? Is 7.5 really that bad for %100 financing of fixed rate?
