Talking Loans with the Loanmonarch

Mortgage and Lending - C2 Financial - NMLS #279125
My blog is intended to inform, educate and de-mystify the lending process for professionals and laypersons alike. There are usually two solutions to every human problem...including obtaining a mortgage! Contact me for any of your financing needs or questions. You deserve to understand what is happening throughout the mortgage process
The question was easy...the first easy one of the day.  Quietly and succinctly:  "Who ARE you?"Whew, finally a question I problems here!  So I began:"I am a Mother"  (my Mentor smiles and shakes his head)."I am a Grandmother" (my Mentor smiles and shakes his head)."I am a Banker"  (my M...
Are you among the millions of Americans who are totally confused, suffering from a severe case of "Financial Analysis Paralysis" and convinced of the country's financial downfall?  Have the disjointed messages from the government and the subsequent media "spin" by the Talking Heads on the evening...
Many, many loan officers and banks post mortgage rates on a daily basis.  Many even have a nifty widget that enables the consumer to input a few general critera (loan amount, purpose, value, credit score...or, more likely:  "excellent, good, fair, poor" and, voila', up pops a rate and the consume...

    The following was sent to me by my dear friend and surrogate Mother, Alice Camphouse, in Sun River, Montana (my home town of 100 or less people).  Alice is truly the "Salt of the Earth" and has been a "farmer's wife" all of her adult life.  Mother and Grandmother to many, Alice has given me ...
I love this post, and it ties in with my recent post on the 3 R's needed in our industry.  I maintain:  too many Loan Officer's know how to READ and too many agents know how to WRITE and both don't RESPECT the other enough.  Great post and worth the read...and the contemplation.When I went on my ...
An interesting perspective on whether or not Fannie can stem the tide of strategic defaults.  Esko makes a pretty good argument that they won't.  Your thoughts?Fannie Mae recently took an assertive step, in its own mind at least, to stem the growing tendency of mortgage borrowers pulling off stra...
