Here it is again ..... Top 10 Reasons to use MY Preferred Lender



Happy Saturday Everyone!

I had to bring back this list which I had in a post back in July, 2011 titled Top 10 Reasons to use MY Preferred Lender! 


I recently had a deal with a certain bank doing the mortgage, that was in complete disarray! And, it absolutely did not need to be! There was no reason for it. This deal wasn't a distressed property, not a short sale, not a foreclosure. My buyer was your typical qualified fha purchaser. In fact, I would say that's one thing the bank did do correctly was pre-approve my buyer. The pre-approval was strong. Without going into too much of a rant here, because I can feel it coming. The highlights or lowlights were - very poor communication, closing was delayed for 2 full weeks making it 2 months from the time the offer was accepted to closing. Ok ..... I said I wasn't going to rant, so let's just leave it at that. We did close and my buyer client was very happy with their home in the end.


Here's my Top 10 List of reasons Why You Should Use One of My Preferred Lenders!
