How much does the average person pay in fees when refinancing a mortgage?

there is no data on the average person, so i will tell you what to look for at your appointment. They should present several plans to refinance your mortgage. If they are a good broker they will have a no-fees plan that comes with a slightly higher intrest rate. The important thing is that you understand that they make money off of you saving money. If they are greedy your savings wont outweigh what they are making. They make money two ways, "on the front" and "on the back". They get "points" from the bank when they give you a higher intrest rate than the lowest possible rate. If they cannot convice you to go with the slightly higher rate, they will attempt to make up the difference in fees.
