(This is Part 3 of a three-part series. Read Part 1, "Why good faith estimate needs overhaul" and Part 2, "HUD aims to crack down on loan overcharges.")

This series of articles explains recent proposals by HUD to make the good faith estimate of fees and charges (GFE) more useful to borrowers. The first two articles explain how the revamped GFE would make it easier for borrowers to shop alternative loan providers (LPs), and would eliminate critical weaknesses of the current GFE that encourage opportunistic pricing. This article looks at proposed revisions in the GFE to make mortgage broker pricing more transparent.
