we went with zero down, 125% financing Interest only on our cottage below:

balloon due in 18 months but I'm not worried, should I be?

on a more serious note /pm Chris Rogers on the board - even if he doesn't sell you a mortgage he's a nice enough guy from what I've seen, and from meeting him, and I think he'll steer you in the right direction even if he can't help you directly.

we've got GMAC, and the customer service has been atrocious, as well as them screwing up/misapplying payments 4x in the past calendar year

now that I pay it online, I don't anticipate any problems with them, and I haven't shopped around lately cause I don't plan on moving, and am happy to have a 5 1/8% 30 yr fixed.

I would suggest looking at a descent credit union, they don't have all the expenses and supposedly free gifts the big commercial banks have. they really look out for you if life happens to through you a curve.

my first mortgage and refinance were with flagstar. Nothing but great imo never had any issues. that got sold to citi and has still been good thus far. my equity line is with chase and they have screwed shit up on the statements but not really a big deal.

My first was with Flagstar. They are good at setting up a decent mortgage - then selling it almost right away.

Chase has it now.

Our old one was through countrywide, they were always fine, and never sold it. I just was curious if brokers and whatnot can find you a better dealer than what you can find yourself.
