It Only Takes One Click. One Call ... Get Started on Buying your First Home

It Only Takes One Click.  
One Call ... to get started

     Yesterday I read an article that provided the results of a Trulia study that stated:

"93% of young adults (those between the ages of 18 to 34 years of age) that are currently renting, plan to purchase a home".

     Great news!  But the article went on to say that these young adults believe that the current, historically low interest rates will last forever ... and that because of that, they may lose out on today's unique and golden opportunity within the housing market.  That's not great news.

      Other recent articles I've seen show that housing markets across the nation are healing and home prices are rising.  As I see it (and based upon my years of experience within the mortgage industry), higher interest rates will return at some point too.  It's inevitable.  When?  No predictions there.

     Unfortunately, interest rates don't have to rise much before potential Home Buyers see real dramatic differences in monthly payments and home buying power.  As many hopeful Buyers will sadly testify, even small increases in interest rates can mean the difference between mortgage approval and denial.

     As I see it, my challenge as a mortgage lender, is to convince young adults that fall into the category mentioned above ... the hopeful home buyers ... to take the first-step towards buying the home they're dreaming of.  

     Low interest rates ... might be gaining your attention and getting you dreaming of a place to call your own.  They may even motivate you to actually view homes on the internet.  

     But only YOU can make home buying a reality.  And that takes real action

     But what's that action?  

    The important first-step is contacting me. Communicate with me via your preferred method so that we can begin to plan and prepare for your home buying wisely and prudently

     In today's mortgage process, we can't talk and begin that preparation too soon.  The further out we get started, (and yes, that can mean up to 6 months to a year ahead of time) the better and more well-positioned you will be when it comes time for actual mortgage application and home purchase.

     You and I will talk in depth.  You'll share with me your hopes for buying a home and the time frame in which you hope to buy.  

     We'll check your credit and go over your finances to make sure both are at optimum advantage for your future home purchase.  We'll clean it up, if necessary.  Spruce it up.  Polish it.  Energize it.

     But again, that calls for action on your part.  It's easy to get started:  

  • Call me at my office.  
  • Call me on my cell or text me.  
  • Email me  
  • Find me on Social Media.  I'm everywhere!  Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Pinterest, Trulia, Yelp, and more ...  

     Together you and I will discover what possibilities and options are yours.  We'll find out what you can afford.  

     We'll make sure you're on the right and best financial track as you move forward towards home ownership.  Whether that's immediate or in the future.

     It's your move to make.  One call.  Only one click ... to get started ...

     Let's talk soon!

     *  To get on track to get the house and mortgage that's a perfect fit for you, take that 1st step.  Contact me.  I'll put my 37 years of mortgage experience and expertise to hard work on your behalf.

Property Addresses: Gettin' Down to the Nitty Gritty

Property Addresses:   Gettin' Down to the Nitty Gritty

Take just a second and read through the following statements ...

“The devil is in the details” 
... "in life, it is often the tiny details that end up 
being the most important"

"Get Down To The Nitty Gritty"

“Little details have special talents in 
creating big problems!” 

“Sweat the details”

"Success is the sum of details"

Details ...Details ... it's all about the details ...
     And I'll admit it, I'm a bit of a nerd about them.  My whole family is.  Details, the intricacies, the little things ... they matter to us.
When I was growing up, a typical conversation (and argument) between my brothers and myself at the dinner table or in the backyard centered around "details".  It didn't matter what the topic was, it was the minor differences ... the details about the topic ... that we argued about.  I'm sure we drove our parents crazy.

Ready for Fall? It's Arriving Soon

Ready for Fall?  It's Arriving Soon

Friend ...

Maybe it's because football season has started. Maybe it's the kids being back in school. Or because the night air is cooler. But a sense of Fall has arrived here in Chicagoland ...

The Fall Season brings changes with it. Changes in temperatures. Changes to the clothing we wear. Our focus seems to shift with the coming of shorter days, falling leaves, and crisp air.

Fall can be the perfect time to do a multitude of things. You can prep your home for the upcoming winter weather ... or for Fall listing and sale. 

But whether you're moving on or staying put, Fall is a great time to declutter and organize your home inside and out ... and your finances too.

I've googled like crazy to find interesting articles filled with Fall info, ideas, tips, and photos. Articles that will help you usher the Fall Season in at your house. I hope you enjoy reading the articles offered below and that they inspire you to make any needed changes.


Paper or Paperless billing? Which serves YOUR needs best?

Paper or Paperless billing?  Which serves YOUR needs best?

These days, companies are under pressure to go "green" and become more environmentally friendly.  As a result, an increasing number of businesses are offering their customers a paperless option with which to receive and pay their bills. 

There are obviously many positives to be found within these paperless services:

Trees are saved  Reduced postage costs  Less paper documentation to organize or save/storePossible rewards for switching to paperlessPayments can often be made/posted same-dayAutomated payments can be set-upMore
But I can tell you from my vantage point as a Chicagoland/IL/WI Mortgage Originator, there are also negatives to be found within paperless methods.  For some of my mortgage clients, the choice of going "paperless" just hasn't worked well.

 For some, an email or text reminder regarding payment of bills has not been enough. They NEED a paper billing to arrive in their mail. 

Their paper bil…
