“Do you recommend I go to where I bank to get a mortgage? Will they give me some kind of preferential treatment?”
The answer would have been “yes” 50 years ago. However, today it’s very rare for a bank to give any significant benefit to one of their customers who gets a mortgage.
Call me at (858) 457-KENT, and I’ll be happy to put you in touch with a great lender that I’ve been using for 25 years.
