Hello Oya
Thank you for reaching out!

An acquisition fee is a sort of administrative fee that lenders set up for their work arranging the loan. It can be paid as a one-time thing that you pay upfront if you negotiate so - the values typically aren't that big, so it's doable. But it's more common to water down the acquisition fee inside the monthly installments. For instance: instead of paying $800 in one shot, you will include $20 on your monthly payment of $1000, leading to a mortgage of $1020 a month. for 40 months.

Hope we cleared that one for you! Good luck!
