I agree with inparadise.

We got a zero point 5.5% loan last summer directly from BoA, in which the other costs were credited. We could have gotten a lower rate had we been willing to pay up-front costs.

To pay off our RE loan, we would have to take the funds from an IRA, and the tax liability would make such a decision untenable.

Disclosure: This loan was a refi, and the loan to value ratio is under 20%, so the lender assumed no added risk other than a 1.25% reduction in interest rate.
