Mortgage information

I want to make your search for a home as stress-free as possible.  

When we find your dream home, I want your offer to be as strong as possible. Offers that are submitted with a Pre-Qualified, or better yet, a Pre-Approved letter from a reputable lender carries a lot of weight. 

To get started, you need to understand the home loan process and know the current mortgage interest rates.  

I encourage you to set up a meeting, face-to-face, with a loan officer.  Our preferred lender, GuaranteedRate, has a full range of loans available to meet most any scenario you have.

Their Online Application, Home Loan Calculator and Rate Comparison are easy to use: check them out below.   30 & 15 Year Fixed Rate Mortgages, FHA, VA, 203K Loans, Construction Loans, USDA Loans, HomePath, they have it all!  

Do you want to learn more before talking with a Loan Officer?
