You also may find that the lender is charging various fees that other lenders don’t charge. Additionally, you may be asked to pay discount points. You need to compare the overall package and not just the rate.

Some are debt consolidation, home improvements, or a major purchase. Some of these choices may offer other financial or personal advantages.
