I need your assist: In two weeks I´m going on a road trip through eight distinct States in the south of the US. Right here are the particulars on the trip twurl.cc/2b08. For the journey I´m looking for excellent music to listen to when I´m on the road. I´m interested in your ideas! What song should I bring with me? Right here is my current list so far:

Tom Petty – American Girl
Dave Matthews Band
Averett Brothers
Sheryl Crow – Daily is a Winding Road
Steve Earl – Copperhead Road
Gomez – Airstream Driver
Lynyrd Skinner – Sweet Residence Alabama
Pearl Jam – Just Breath
Norah Jones – Chasing Pirates
Van Morrison – Tupelo Honey

It would be fantastic to get some of your ideas!!!! Thank you so a lot!

I would say the lender fees seem to be a little excessive.

Appraisal fee and credit report are standard.

BUT the other 3??
Orig fee $ 1062.50
Processesing Fee $ 445.00
Admin Fee $ 895.00
Total $ 2402.50

I am in Pennsylvania and these type lender fees would run around $ 1200. If I were you I would get another quote from another lender.

The rest of the Good faith looks ok..BUT is hazard insurance really $ 2160/year? Here it would run around $ 600/yr.

What do you think? Answer below!

  1. Looks tottally normal to me. in fact your Apprasal fee, and other inspection fees are well below the national average. The I’ve seen lender fee’s cost far more then this for that amount of a loan.
