How to Choose Your Will County and Chicagoland "Super" Mortgage Originator

How to Choose Your Will County -
Chicagoland "Super" Mortgage Originator

     One of the questions I see crop-up often on real estate websites comes from First-time Home Buyers.  It concerns HOW they should go about looking for and choosing the  Mortgage Originator for their first home's financing.

     Often, in response to these questions, I see others offering up the name of an Originator they know for contact.  And I suppose if that name crops-up multiple times, that does provide at least a starting point from which a home buyer can work.
     But I think those looking for mortgage lending services, especially First-time Home Buyers, need a more specific answer to that very important question.  First-time Home Buyers need absolutes ... real guidelines they can follow to help them find the strong "Super" Mortgage Originator that will ultimately prove best suited to their personal financial needs and most beneficial to securing a successful outcome when they buy their home.

     So, HOW do you go about finding your own "Super" Mortgage Originator?

     I won't try to kid you.  What I'm about to suggest takes time and effort on your part.  But the end results make it worth it, because the Mortgage Originator you end up choosing will possess the attributes:

     *  YOU find important 
     *  YOU are comfortable with
     *  A great reputation.  They will come highly recommended by multiple people, including other real estate-related professionals
      They'll have responded to your initial inquiries and questions in a timely and thorough fashion
     *  They'll have provided information regarding what determines your Interest Rate and your mortgage program costs
     *  That Mortgage Lender/Originator will be experienced, knowledgeable, and have a proven track record for successful Closings.  They'll offer references, testimonials.
     *  They'll have provided you real guidance, based upon facts and your personal finances ... not just generalities
     *  You will have found by speaking with their prior clients/professionals worked with ... that they were willing to "go to bat" for those clients, if need be.  That they don't give up on their clients or their transaction.  That they serve as a true advocate on the behalf of their clients and referral partners.

     If you truly hope to find the best Mortgage Originator  for your needs, there's no getting around it ...  

     You need to do your homework.  You need to ask questions ... and then keep on asking them.   

     Dig long enough and hard enough to discover the Mortgage Originator that matches the characteristics listed above.  You want to work with the best.  I think that's me.

     If you're a Home Buyer looking to buy a home within the current market, doing that homework is well worth the effort.  

     You'll not only reap a good interest rate, but a home at an unbelievable price.  And  you'll be establishing a real relationship with a quality, experienced Mortgage Originator.  

     One that will continue to work on your behalf beyond the Closing table.  A "Super" Mortgage Lender/Originator with which you can always rely in the future.   

     Get started now ...

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…
