Dallas Morning news recently published a report indicating that the average cost of a $200,000 home loan in the U.S. ranged from a low of $2,119 in Wisconsin to a high of $2,919 in Hawaii. This figure excludes the cost of title insurance.
Texas came in at #13, with average costs of $2,468. In 2012, Texas ranked as 3rd highest in the nation, with $2,434. Obviously, other states have been raising their loan fees.
The national average is $2,402.
Here in Texas, the costs included an average of $1,690 in fees for items such as underwriting, processing, attorney fees, warehousing, and in some cases – a fee to the mortgage broker for loan origination. $778 were 3rd party fees, such as the appraisal.
The Mike Clover Group at Homewood Mortgage thinks those fees are simply too high.
That’s why we cap our fees at a flat rate of $1,150 – to cover underwriting, processing, attorney fees, and warehousing. We do not charge an additional origination fee.

And … no matter where you are in Texas, you’ll still get the personal service you’d expect from your neighborhood banker. Loans Now option is available, too.
In addition, we guarantee that your loan will close in 30 days or less.
