Something seems fishy about this -- the going rate for VA loans is around 5.625% at one point. You are paying two points, but rate buydowns don't work on a 1:1 basis. Usually, for every point you pay you get a reduction of .5% off the interest rate, give or take.

Do you know if the seller is paying any costs for you? Maybe they are paying a point to get you a lower rate.

Inter First @4.5% paying .125 out the back.

Everything looks good and fair to me. The broker gets to earn a paycheck and you get a great rate. Simply the difference between paying the broker and seeing what you are paying the broker, vs. not paying any closing costs and broker earning his wages through a higher rate.

There are several circumstances that can be argued between the two differences as to which one is best.

Both of you are getting very decent terms.
