Why are "base rates" not identified when "discount points" are quoted?In looking at several quotes, there is a sliding scale of "discount points" associated with rates. However, there is no mention of what the "base rate" was - which would be really helpful in deciding if the discount points were worth paying.Rather than give me X-number of quotes with different discount points, why not just quote the base rate and then identify costs to buy down the rate?August 11 2009 - San Diego00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
