Help Me Help You! Avoid Missteps Before and During Your Chicagoland Mortgage Process

     In yesterday's post, I referred to my "beating the drum" loud and often on certain mortgage topics.  Well, today ... I'm beatin'  my drum again.  This time regarding my list of Credit "Do's and Don'ts" for clients while in preparation for and during Mortgage Processing.

     It seems no matter how many times or how many ways this topic is broached (or my drum is beaten) with clients, questions still come up or problems arise.  Some get carried away with enthusiasm regarding their new purchase.  Others forget.  Or any one of a million others things contribute to the problem.  But I don't quit trying to resolve that problem!!

     Below, I've added my list of Credit "Do's and Don'ts" that I provide to all my mortgage clients.  While other more specific things may come up during any individual's transaction, I think it touches upon the issues that clients must be aware of and see arise most often.

     Remember the scene from the movie "Jerry McGuire?" The line, "Help Me, Help You" became famous because of the scene below:
     I can relate.  In essence, this is what I hope my list of Credit "Do's and Don'ts" does for you.  It's helps me .. help you.  My list provides a written reminder you can refer to as you navigate your mortgage process.  My list helps you do the right things that will facilitate your transaction and avoid the pitfalls.                 

     Hopefully my list of Credit "Do's and Don'ts" While in Preparation For and During Mortgage Processing does the same for you ... or your clients:

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…
