    Did you happen to look at the property evaluation that was compiled for the bank?Try and find comparative sales in the area that best match your property, if you think that it's worth more then what you’re being offered then ask. I too had what I thought was a low evaluation from a bank but then saw that there wasn't any recent comparative sa…[Read more]

    Your mortgage would increase to $770,000 and so would your repayments.
