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
  Jeff has done a great job of explaining rates...from front to back!  The "What's your rate" conversation has baffled me for years!  Moreso, I loathe (okay, strong word) mortgage rate daily drops and mortgage rate calculators....they are all basically "bait and switch" tactics.  As any mortgage ...

A big thank you to Elliott for the ability to reblog this post.  Important and crucial information.  However, I have to tell you that a signed and recorded road maintenence agreement is required on all properties that are accessed by a private road.  The lender/investor is concerned as much about...
Teaching an old dog some new tricks.  Okay, I am not willing to concede that I am an old dog,  However, I am willing and motivated to explore new revelations in the lending process.   In a typical mortgage/real estate transaction the consumer meets with the mortgage professional, who in turn tak...
