NEW Study just out by Zillow

How much can a broker save you on a mortgage? According to Zillow, between a quarter and half a percentage point. That may not sound like a big deal, but borrow $300,000 at 5 percent, and you’ll pay a total of about $280,000 in interest over 30 years. Raise the rate by half a percentage point to 5.5, however, and your total interest bill rises to $313,000. That’s $33,000 more
