Real estate fee kickback schemes also involve inflated closing fees As if kickbacks aren’t bad enough, there are also issues with title companies marking up closing fees. Although the vast majority of realtors, builders, escrow companies and title companies are ethical, there is a large enough occurrence of this type of fraud to make HUD take.

If you turn over one rock then 5 real estate agents will pop out, but no more than 1 of that 5 will even ever ask a lender for any form of kickback. The other four - the super majority - just want their people well taken care of.   A REAL estate agent recommends two mortgage brokers whom she describes as experienced in closing loans. You go to the first one, and don’t bother shopping around on rates or fees.
