WASHINGTON – Hispanic home shoppers have another resource for timely information on qualifying for a mortgage, interest rates and refinancing, thanks to the Interagency Task Force of Fair Lending. The federal agency which is comprised of NCUA and other members, has published a Spanish-language version of its popular brochure for consumers, “Looking for the Best Mortgage: Shop, Compare, Negotiate.” The brochure, “Buscando la hipoteca ms favorable: Compare, Verifique, Negocie,” describes how comparing and negotiating interest rates, fees and other payment terms may help consumers get the best financing and possibly save thousands of dollars, whether it’s a home purchase, a refinancing, or a home equity loan. The brochure is free and can be accessed through www.consumer.gov. The members of the Interagency Task Force include NCUA, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Department of Justice, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Federal Housing Finance Board, Federal Reserve Board, Federal Trade Commission, Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and Office of Thrift Supervision.
