The Words Chosen Can Make a Difference

The Words Chosen Can Make a Difference     

     Today I'm working on a rather challenging mortgage scenario for new and hopeful applicants ...
     There are many elements to this transaction that serve to make it somewhat extraordinary.  

     But the one thing that's proving the most challenging is the wording chosen for a portion of the signed Contract. 

     The applicants involved have excellent credit/credit scores and secure employment.  Their financial position is stellar and very secure.  Every indication is that they're financially rock solid and would be at little risk for credit issues arising in the future.

     Yet, there is that darn wording within the Contract to be concerned with.  And it's causing a bit of havoc ...

     So my objective in writing this post is:  

  1. To alert real estate professionals to the importance of word choice within a Real Estate Contract.  It can influence the difficulty and speed with which their Applicants' Mortgage financing is secured.
  2. In extreme cases, it can hinder or prevent a successful Mortgage Application.

     That's what is being experienced by my new Applicants.  The wording within their Contract is hindering and slowing down their entire buying/financing process.

     So how can this be prevented?  

     In transactions that may be somewhat out of the ordinary or challenging like mine:

     It would be wise prior to the writing of the Contract ... or certainly prior to the signing, that agents and clients have a conversation with me (the Mortgage Lender).  

     This one simple act could prevent problematic issues from rising during the financing process.  It will help mortgage underwriting and application proceed more smoothly for the client ... and for the professionals involved too.   

     I'm confident that I will work through the challenges found within this present Contract.  However, it'll take time to do so.  The unknown time element will cause some additional stress for the client.  Stress that could have been avoided. 

     So take the time to make a call.  Ask me questions.  Ask for direction.  It's definitely worth doing ...

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…
