Sending Holiday Wishes To You and Yours!

Sending Holiday Wishes To You and Yours!

The Mundt family has been celebrating Christmas and the Holidays early this year.  
     Our family is growing once again. We're eagerly awaiting the birth of another grandbaby any day now.  Celebrations and get-togethers were bumped-up to accommodate our greatly-anticipated new arrival ... and one very tired expectant mommy.
     I know that my family and I are not alone in our busy schedules, our joys, and many celebrations ... so I'm  sending my holiday message and a small "gift" a bit early.  
     Below you will find a music video.  I think it provides testament to what beauty we humans can accomplish and share when we join together.  I share it with you now ...      

      May you be surrounded by those people that you care most about during your special festivities, no matter what day and in what manner you celebrate.  And that you find Peace, Joy, Good Health, Prosperity, Family, Friends, and Love in huge measure throu…

When a "NO" Doesn't Mean "NO" ... or at Least Not Forever

When "NO" Doesn't Mean "NO" ...  or at Least Not Forever
Do I have you thoroughly confused with my title?  If so, let me explain ...
     So many of my potential Mortgage Applicants mention thestatistics reported regarding their chances of successfully obtaining financing for a home purchase.  Add what's heard regarding today's actual Mortgage process (which is portrayed as pretty bad too) ... and I can find myself in front of some pretty scared people.  Especially true, if they're First-Time Home Buyers.

     It's hard to deny that the current process for obtaining Mortgage financing can be challenging.  I've addressed this fact many times in prior posts.  In those post I've firmly stated what I also believe to be a fact ... that WHO you choose to work with while pursuing your financing makes a world of difference in the outcome you find.  
Simply: If you, as a hopeful Home Buyer don't take the time to do your homework ... or make the ef…

Construction Terms & Definitions You Need to Know While Building a Home in Will County & Chicagoland   

I've written regarding new home construction in the Chicagoland and Will County area before ...    

Within my post I provided a "blueprint" of sorts for the pursuit of New Construction Mortgage financing and what is vitally important should you hope to find success in securing a Construction Loan.  

     You see, Construction financing is a process ... one that takes place in an ongoing fashion throughout the planning, building, and ultimately ... at the completion of your home.  Given that fact, it's wise to be fully educated and familiar with the language and construction terms heard through the financing and building processes.  

Now is the perfect time to kick-start that education and to get your new Construction questions answered.  For financing information, contact me.  

To help you during the planning and construction of your home, I went in search of glos…
