Got offer of 30yr refi of 346,000 at 4.875, 3200 in fees. CA home est at 567,000. Good deal?

Contacted one of those "we'll have four lenders call you' sites.  First responder was a high-tech, high-pressure group wanting my 500 fee right now to lock in a 4.875, 30-year fixed refinance of a 8-year old California home estimated currently at 567,000.  No points but $3200.00 fees.  When I asked for time to think about it they put the boss on who all but called me a fool for delaying and possibly risk loosing that good rate.  Am I a fool?

You're not a fool. It's great you resisted the high-pressure!

Today you could get a loan for 4.500%. Although, the fees would be about double.
