Thread Details

Box Home Loans [boxhomeloans.com/slickdeals/] is offering an extra credit of 1/8th of a point on top of their already low rates and fees to Slickdeals users.

This allows some well qualified individuals to refinance or purchase a home at 3.125%* for no cost or even get a credit (they pay you!) towards closing.

Here at Slickdeals, we've actually had several employees use Box Home Loans, and after realizing it was such a good deal, we reached out to them to see if they could offer something even sweeter to our users. We've done a lot of comparison shopping for our own personal homes and Box Home Loans have always been the lowest (so far!) in fees, closing costs and rates! From our personal experience, its fast and no-nonsense.

Box Home Loans services the following states:
  • Arizona
  • California,
  • Colorado,
  • Idaho,
  • Nevada,
  • New Mexico,
  • Oregon,
  • Texas,
  • Utah
  • Washington
To give you guys an idea of the rate comparisons we did some research today*:

Is "zero due" or "no close" the same meaning: no loaner fee, no appraisal, no title insurance fee?

Wanted to chime in and say I bought a home using Box Home Loans; it was a simple process, easy and they were communicative. Because it was a short-sale it got dragged out by the banks and various third parties (not Box Home Loan's fault), but they were always on-top of it and helpful.

I had an issue where I originally applied with a co-borrower, and mid-process decided to try it on my own. They were able to do this, but there was a bug in their system, so eventually even one of the founders personally stepped in to help fix it.

All in all, great rates, good service. Eventually my loan was sold to Penny Mac.
I signed yesterday on our house using Box Home Loans. They were fantastic on a HUD foreclosure purchase that has been delayed numerous times since September, BHL was ready to close our purchase 2 weeks ahead of HUD's 1st set closing date. Phone calls and emails were always returned the same day, worked with the same loan officer and processor after all documents were sent in. I found them thru here and would not hesitate to use them again. Having a scanner, printer and all financials ready to go will make the process with them fly by.

Anyone have a good suggestion on a 10yr refi and low closing cost? Everywhere I loo the lender either does not offer shorter than 15yr terms and lenders that do the closing fees don't make sense to refi.

Is there a benefit to going through slickdeals? Also, how did you "go through" slickdeals as well.

Also, is there a way to get past the credit check charge that homeboxloans charges?

DAMN! Nothing in South Carolina?! I've got a nearly 800 score last I checked.

I've been running into problems where lenders don't want to give me a refinance because my remaining loan is under $30k (it is only a $42k condo to begin with). I called Wells Fargo (where my loan is already located) and they said they can refinance me for $3,000 which seems like robbery. Any suggestions?

My suggestion is to try to pay that thing off as quickly as you can and be mortgage free! A condo down payment around me would be way more than your purchase price. Bite the bullet and pay that sucker off if you can.

Yeah but it would be nice to lock in a lower interest rate just in case I have to go back to minimum payments. It would be even sweeter if I could get approved for a higher loan amount so I could pay off student loans that are currently at a higher interest rate as well.

Try Privident Funding (provident.com). They have been mentioned in this thread, and they cover SC. I am just about to close with them near Greenville in a week, and they have been very good. You can also get a discount with them if you go through Perkspot.com as well. Perkspot is free to join.

Good Luck!

No offense OP but I'm an underwriter for Home Loans Refi and Purchases, and I did a purchase today for one of the "bigger" banks below prime @ 2.75% with an APR of 3.078%....Seller paid closing costs and 3.5% down. Not trying to hate on your deal and you can delete this comment if needed.

Obviously seller paid costs is the big difference though.
which state is that?

Provident is excellent but they want a 80/20 minimum ratio. I was 82/18 and no go.

You are right, I just got excited on the thought that if I was in that situation I could be mortgage free Smilie Would definitely be nice to get a larger loan and get all the student loans paid off/dropped. I was considering this but I read online that it isn't always a wise choice. Th reason is because god forbid something happened where you couldn't pay your mortgage/student loans, a student loan can be put on hold and you can resume payment without too much issue. If you combined your total balance and put it on the mortgage and paid off all the school loan bills, you basically give up that ability to default on paying school loans if you couldn't pay them.

So the idea is, if you leave them separate and $hit hits the fan, you can stop paying your school loans and they wouldn't be taking your house. If you pay the loans and combine into your mortgage the same forgiveness rules don't apply anymore and you may loose it all.

Probably didn't explain that great, but you can probably get the idea i'm sharing from it. I don't know if this is good advice, but it made logical sense so I took it as good advice.

PS, I just refinanced with Provident less than a year ago. Process was smooth, they gave a closing credit, and the rate was great. So far they seem to be on top of all the payment notices/emails/updates, i'm happy so far.
