A Consolidation, Extension and Modification Agreement (“CEMA”) may potentially save New York borrowers thousands of dollars on their refinance transactions.
According to the Federal Reserve, buyers on average spend 3% of their mortgage amount on closing costs. However, in high-tax areas of the country such as New York, this amount can range between 5% and 6% of the loan. By utilizing a CEMA, these costs can be reduced.
CEMA works by consolidating the old outstanding debt with the new debt, allowing the borrower to only pay the mortgage tax (it varies by county) on the difference between these two loans instead of the entire mortgage amount. The result – a savings of thousands.
