I haven't found much success in going direct to banks, more with credit unions. But, what I like to do is find a good mortgage broker. They've been more consistent in getting good rates. As a realtor or two who the recommend.

like

3-5 is average- I called 5 and chose #2 of those 5 bc they had the best rate/ program

like

One. The one recommended by my agent, because she had a guy that worked with her clients a lot.

Yeah; either way the message is to go on and do proper research- don’t go with the first one that comes along

I used a mortgage broker. Good one knows how to get best deals and won't ask lot of unnecessary questions during the mortgage process. If you go with a large bank, you may end up providing lot of documents. Not worth it

like

None.

Deal like you would with car salesman- Tell them credentials and ask what they can do in next 2 mints, else you are driving off- banks can have better tha broker rates, you need to negotiate- look aggressive get a red polo shirt for interaction

Term life insurance question - I added the AICPA annual term policy last year. I've noticed personal finance media seems to push 10-20 year term and not discuss annual.

It was considerable cheaper up front and more at the end than 10yr per the fee schedule. If all goes according to plan I'll be at or close to FI within 5-7 years so not sure that I'd keep the full amount past then and would miss the benefit of the cheaper years at the end. Am I missing other risks of not doing 10+ term?
