I just got this e-mail today, (please see below) the original fee for an appraisal was $345. We called to ask what the deal was and they went on to say that gas prices have doubled. Can you believe that? Also, the town is not at the tip of the peninsula in MA, it is half way down the cape. Just another way for big businesses to stick it to the little guy.
I told this bank that we were all set and and were going somewhere else so they finally changed there tune and are going to do the appraisal for the original fee. If you have want a honest mortgage company to represent you please visit: www.massmortgageloan.com
