When you ask, "What's this going to cost me?" you deserve a straight answer. Preferably with a spreadsheet to back it up.

"It usually costs to refinance," Smith says. So-called no-cost refis have fees built into the loan.

Ask the potential lender to itemize the fees and explain them all, Frank advises.
