Overwhelmed or In Charge During Your Mortgage Process? YOU Decide

 Overwhelmed or In Charge During 
Your Mortgage Process?  
YOU Decide    

     Today's mortgage process can seem a bit 
overwhelming to some Borrowers ...  

     And that's true whether those Borrowers are First-Time Home Buyers or those that have bought a home a dozen times.

     In comparison with financing conducted during the mid-2000's, today's mortgage process has become a more demanding process for Borrowers with regards to:  

  • Documentation needed
  • Verifications requested 
  • Time and Attention demanded 
     So there are some reasons for this to occur ...  

     With that in mind then, is there anything Borrowers can do to protect themselves from becoming overwhelmed during the processing of their mortgage?

     I've found that the two following issues seem to be the issues that trip-up my Borrowers most often:

     1.  Refusing to just "give in" to the process for the duration of their transaction.  

          Truth is, there's no way to get around the process ... or an Underwriters' request(s).  Don't battle it.  You either produce the information, comply, or you don't close.   

     2.  Inconsistent attention is given to the processing of their loan, communications, and requests for information.

     Borrowers simply can't ignore communications or pay attention sporadically.  They must remain consistently involved throughout the entire process.  

      Borrowers that choose to address and conquer these two hurdles fare far better throughout their mortgage processing.  They don't become overwhelmed by the process.

     They flow through their processing more easily and quickly.  Enjoy their transaction far more.  And have a much better chance of closing on their home on time

     The stress and success levels of a mortgage process can be greatly dictated by the personal choices YOU, the Borrower makes.  

     Choosing to communicate in a timely fashion ... and being thoroughly involved from beginning planning stages to completion of Closing ... are both wise decisions that will help ensure your transaction's outcome. 

     It remains your decision ...

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…
