How Deal Optimizer works?

Step 1

Search for rates, minus the fees

Everyone shops for mortgage rates but compare apples and oranges. Cut through the noise and find the "par" rate with 0 points and fees. That enables a fair comparison

Analyze down payments

Lower down payments don't always mean higher rates. Down payments have discrete thresholds, so 10.1% and 15% down could have the same rate!  Tuning down payments reduces cash to buy while balancing rates.

Step 2

Step 3

Evaluate discount points

Lenders provide "par" rates along with the "cost to buy" a lower rate, or a "credit to accept" a higher rate. Discount points have non-linear cost-benefit trade-offs. Our algorithms analyze rate data to make precise recommendations.

Altgage helped us discover options we never considered. We bought our next home with 10.1% down and retained the current home as a rental. Altgage's creativity & willingness to question convention helped pull it off.

This is a professional operation. I got clear scenarios to choose from. The transparency was amazing, and my rate was 1% lower. They helped me navigate a tricky issue with the HOA. I am very thankful to the Altgage team
