     One unconscionable cost in every real estate loan is title insurance, easily a $1,000 cost on a residence. Although we were told at first that that was necessary and unchangeable, we learned that there is some flexibility for savings here. We called on several bidders for a recent refinance of our home and broke out the competing estimates. Title insurance cost estimates were $935, $505, $410, and $155 (from our original lender.)

     You can make the title insurance go away if you pay cash for your project, or use a loan secured by another source, like an equity loan on your current residence. Or you might get a “reissue rate” from a title company if they issued you a policy on the property within the past three years.

     More than that, title companies have the flexibility to give you a “friend’s rate” or an “abbreviated title policy”. Worth calling around and trying for the best deal.

     The same applies to the appraisal that is part of your loan. Some lenders will let you use a “limited appraisal” at a much smaller charge if you clearly have large equity in the project. Getting the “right” appraisal is critically important in some situations - lots of good advice here that could help you qualify for the loan you need or get the selling price you’re hoping for.
