My loan rate is 3.75% with a .500% credit towards closing cost. Will the credit cover my closing cost? How does this work.

A .500 lender credit amounts to 1/2 of a percent of your total loan amount. So, for example if your loan amount is $100,000, then the credit would be $500.That may cover the appraisal or something in that range, it will not come close to covering all the closing costs.

As Lorne explained.. .500% credit is $500 per every $100K in sale price.. so it's unlikely it will be enough to cover all your costs.. I'm a Broker here in Scottsdale AZ and I only lend in Arizona.

3% will usually cover all closing costs on any loan.

Looks like you have some good answers to your questions! If you would still like another comparison (rate/costs) from a lender here in California contact me viamy profile. By the way...if you have a $500,000 loan then .500% might cover your traditional closing costs (not counting tax/insurance impounds and some interest due.
