WANT TO BUY A HOME?  BE SURE TO SHOP MULTIPLE MORTGAGE LENDERS

August 14, 2021

Recently I was consulting with some people who wanted to buy a home, but they were in a unique financial situation - new small business owners, not long history of income, no downpayment available, etc.  I gave them some names of trusted lenders and sent them on their way.  Well, they came back to me and were completely confused - information from all the lenders was conflicting - some was helpful to their situation, some was not.

I asked a very knowledgeable real estate broker friend who told me that a lot has changed in the mortgage lending world in the past several years and what it boils down to pretty much are the policies and procedures at each individual mortgage lender.  Sure, there are some standard practices that all follow, but much of it depends on the individual lender.

Bottom line:  If you want to buy a home, be sure to shop around multiple lenders to see who will not only give you the best rate, but the best terms for your mortgage.  Also, mortgage lending is constantly changing, so it is very important that you find an experienced and knowledgeable lender - I would estimate someone (and their company) who has been in the business continuously for at least 10 years and has multiple excellent ratings/reviews from their clients.


If ever in doubt, contact a real estate attorney for assistance.
