if a broker says he has a rate of 4.5, is it assumed that there is a corresponding higher APR with it. What is APR? Another lender, Quicken has a lower rate than the broker 4.275 with an APR that is higher than the broker's quoted 4.5. Do I assume the broker's 4.5% has an APR even higher than the second Quicken quote? I have read and read and cannot find a clue as to where to find a broker who will do this fairly (without shenanigans to pay for hummers and vacations in Tahiti). Where do I start to find such a person?
