What questions can I ask the mortgage lenders to make sure I choose the right one?

You'll want to ask questions like how much is the loan costing and how much you will be required to come up with when your loan closes. The most important thing is to find out how much the loan is costing you and an honest mortgage lenders would be happy to disclose the information.

This means that they only make money when your loan closes, so jumping from one lender to another is not the best way to conduct business. A mortgage lenders wants your business forever, so when you find one willing to stick their neck out for you and spend the time you need discussing the loan, you should stick with them because you've found the right lender.
