BANK OF AMERICA MORTGAGE RATE REVIEWS
I don't write reviews, but I've decided to let out my frustrations based on a bad deal with Bank of America. First of all, that name does not represent America (it should be changed) because it forces people to take bad loans in efforts to profit the institution. I am stuck with a balloon second mortgage loan, which was never discussed at closing. As I am getting close to the term of the agreement, a letter was sent by the bank and the word balloon came up in big bold letters. When I called to get a clarification of what the "balloon" stands for; I was told that it is an interest only type of mortgage. My understanding was at the end of the term of the mortgage, I would be finished paying for the loan. This was a $69,000 loan and 13 years later, I still owe $55,000. Two more years to go to complete the term in which I taught to have a ZERO balance.
Lesson learned, some banks cannot be trusted as they are greedy and will take advantages when possible. The government has now established regulations to punish banks that continue such practices.
Be alert with mortgage transactions with Bank of America and those alike. Please read the agreement carefully and ask questions. If you feel something is wrong, go with another bank. Usually smaller banks offer better terms, and they are not as aggressive and greedy for your hard earned money.

I have been a member of BOA for about 3 years now. I have a savings account and a mortgage with them. They are very friendly, and their loan originators are very knowledgeable. They keep in contact with you and help you each step of the way when it comes to getting a loan. I even was given the opportunity to lower my rate by paying off my original loan with a home equity loan at a stunning 3% with no closing costs. I have saved a great deal of time and stress by having been a member of this bank. The tellers are very nice and can easily process any need that I have.… read more
I only gave them one start because I had to. I wish there was an option for no stars. This bank is corrupt. There's no polite way to say it. Our mortgage was bought out from Country Wide, and had we known this would have happened, we never would have bought the home. During the economic crisis in 07-08, we got a few months behind on our mortgage. We stayed in contact, calling every week. We were told repeatedly that everything was ok, and that the bank had approved an agreement that would allow us to add the payment to the end of the loan. We kept calling, and tried to make payments. The bank REFUSED our payment, (claiming that they couldn't accept anything until the agreement was finalized, but again, telling us not to worry, after all, it was already approved.) About three months later, we received a denial on the agreement, and the banks reason was: (get ready to laugh), we made too much money. We were actually able to hold up our end of the agreement, but... we made too much money for them to give us one. I had seen these sorts of things on the news, and you never believe the people making these claims, but... its true. It happened to me. This bank should be closed down for fraudulent practices.… read more
We refinanced several years back. BOA was very easy to work with, the necessary paperwork and application forms were straightforward and easy to fill out. The application writer was good to work with and she kept us informed of the entire process throughout and until closing. The appraisal went well and BOA was able to find us a local appraiser quickly. Everyone involved was punctual and followed through on all their promises. On the several occasions we've had to contact BOA Mortgage Department, they have been very helpful and answered all of our questions satisfactorily. BOA even went as far as reviewing our mortgage and finding us a way to save quite a nice sum of money every month. I would recommend them to friends and family.… read more
I didn't start with Bank of America. They bought my mortgage. First I was unhappy to change the way I paid but it turned out to be much easier. It was easy to set up a direct deposit and I can pay off my mortgage early. They include a few tools to see how much faster you can pay it off with different methods like biweekly payments or additional payments. You can also pay a little more on principle or escrow online. They also have a calendar that shows when you are due and where late charges come into play.
The thing I use the most though is the iPhone app where you can pay your mortgage on the phone so I don't even have to log into the computer. All in all, it's not bad. They are a few things I wish they had though like an auto pay feature but I am not sure I have heard of any banks offering that.
Also, if you have an escrow and it goes over the amount authorized there is no option to just put that money on the principle. They end up sending you a check at the end of the year and you have to go cash it then bring it back to them. It’s kind of annoying but only happens once a year.… read more
Having had a very bad experience with Bank of America through their credit card department, I was not very happy when I found out that my mortgage had been bought by them. Number one, I was very hesitant to set up payments with them and, number two, we had not had very good experiences talking to customer service before. When I called to set up out automatic payments, the agent on the other line was very nice and knowledgeable. The agent assured me that they would draft the payments on the day I set up and if it was different to just call them. The process to set up automatic payments was not hard but a little time consuming. I have had to call into the mortgages department several times in the three years they have been servicing our loan and each time I have been impressed with the service I got. The mortgage department has definitely saved their reputation with me.… read more
I used to be a B of A customer. I'm glad that I'm not any longer. I had nothing but trouble from them the entire time I was a customer there. There was an issue with my mortgage that involved me having to drive four hours away, on the first of every month, to make my payment in person. They took six months to figure that nonsense out before they finally let me make my payments online again. There is no physical location closer to me than that and that made them a trouble to me as well. The employees do not care about the customers or about how they are treated. I do not recommend them and I would like to say that I'm very happy with my new bank.… read more
My husband and I have been with Bank of America for over two years now. When we refinanced our house, our mortgage was purchased by Bank of America. This financial institution was not our choice. We had our mortgage with Wells Fargo Bank when we first bought our house in 2008, and we were very happy with them. Bank of America has taken every opportunity to nickel and dime us. For instance, they charge us to make payments online, and they charge us a $10 fee to pay over the phone. It is difficult to work with the customer service representatives because not all of them know what they are doing. One positive aspect of Bank of America is they will work with people if they do fall behind on the mortgage. Overall, this is not the best bank to take a mortgage for you house from.… read more
I've been a customer of Bank of America for approximately 8 years, after they purchased my mortgage from a different mortgage company. I wasn't pleased when my loan was first sold to them as I spent a great deal of time being transferred from one department/person to another. Over the years I have requested many times to stop paper communication, and every time the representative states it will be taken care of, but last week I received a paper statement again. At the beginning of November 2012 I contacted Bank of America and spoke with two different people regarding an early payment I made, and was told there was no record of the payment and the confirmation number I had wouldn't help them. 3 days later I received a letter in the mail stating they attempted to contact me to confirm that I wanted to make an extra payment, but cancelled it because they couldn't reach me. It's frustrating dealing with a company that doesn't train their reps on where/how to look for information. I do enjoy their website though. It is user friendly. It is easy to find information and it appears to be up-to-date. Since I don’t want to refinance my mortgage I'll stick it out and hopefully continue to be able to communicate with Bank of America strictly on their website.… read more
My girlfriend and I purchased a house, and as anyone could guess this bank bought the mortgage. Not only have we found out that they impose a fee you if you don't make deposits every single month, but they also ask you literally 20 different times to verify who you are when you try to make one, single transaction online. Today, for example I tried to extract the excess money that was left over in my account (because we pay a small amount over the monthly mortgage cost each month) and transfer it out of their account and into my main bank account. I was asked for my user id, password, city that I was born, they forced me to regurgitate the security code that they sent to my email, then they made me enter not only the card number on the front of the check card, but the security code on the back, and then after all of this, I ended up having to funnel the money over to my credit card at my other bank through BoA's bill pay option just to get my stinking money back. Their nickle and dimming practices are borderline illegal.… read more
