RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Mortgage debt in the US has reached 15-trillion according to the Federal Reserve.

Clever, a real estate data company looked at the numbers and found-- where you live can play a huge role in how much you pay in fees and even interest rate.

The average mortgage fee in Virginia is $2479.35. The highest you’ll pay in feels is in California and Washington State.

Make sure you don’t become house poor. Do your homework and pay attention to the market.
