Buying, Building, or Refinancing a Home? A Glossary of Terms

Buying, Building, or Refinancing a Home?
A Glossary of Terms  

     Everyone is susceptible to it ... 

     No matter their profession. But as a Mortgage Lender I sometimes catch myself using slang or industry terminology when talking to clients and referral partners.  When you read and "talk" them as much as I do, it's only natural that it happens.  

     I find that many of my clients are well-read and informed regarding the Mortgage Process.  That they don't even skip a beat when I do it.  They're that familiar with the terms because of all the homework and reading they've done. 

     But for those that are first-time home buyers and new to the process ... or in its very early stages, that slang and those words can seem pretty confusing.  I might as well be speaking some foreign language.

     No doubt about it, there's a slew of words and terms that get used during today's Mortgage Process.  Many of them can be downright confusing.  
     Especially when I'm getting that "deer in the headlight look", I slow down ... explain the terms and documents in question ... and make sure they are completely understood before we proceed further.  

     Borrowers just can't make good decisions regarding their financing if they don't understand important parts of it.

     To help Borrowers acquaint themselves with the words and terminologies they'll be hearing throughout their Mortgage Process, I'll often refer them to the Mortgage Glossary I offer on my website

     As the Mortgage Process (and Industry) evolves, I add the new words and terminologies being used.  So if it's been a while since you financed a home, my Glossary is a great place to reacquaint yourself with mortgage and real estate terms ... and learn the new ones too.
