Searching for home loans? you have to start by finding the right lender or loan officer. Here are 5 tips for finding the right lender or loan officer for you.
What do you look for when choosing a lender? As a Realtor, here are my top 5 requirements.
Working people buy houses, so lenders need to be available “off work” hours.
Updates please! We need to know what is going on with the loan on a regular basis. In this business, no news is NOT good news.
How fast can they close the loan? Some big banks (i.e. Chase) are notoriously late!
4. Multiple Loan Programs
One size does not fit all when it comes to loans. We need flexibility and multiple options. Uber wealthy client’s needs are different than a first-time buyer’s needs.
5. No Junk Fees
There are typical loan fees (i.e. Appraisal), but I don’t want my clients to pay extra junk fees along the way.
Okay…one more thing I couldn’t leave out.
6. Team Work
I find the best loan officers have a support team helping them. A solo loan officer doesn’t cut it in today’s market.
