Why It's Wise to Review Your Will County - Chicagoland Mortgage


Why It's Wise to Review 
Your Will County - Chicagoland Mortgage



Have you ever asked yourself:

  • Is the mortgage I presently hold on my Chicagoland home still the best financial/loan option available to me?  
  • Is it fulfilling my current needs?
  • Does it help me reach my short and long-term goals?
  • Could my mortgage be working harder on my behalf?

If you've not asked yourself these questions, you should ...

After closing on your mortgage, it's understandable that you'd want to celebrate, take your victory lap, and just get to the business of paying your monthly loan payment. But over time, Mortgage programs ... and the options and benefits they can provide you ... can change or evolve.  

New mortgage programs and financing rules and regulations are always being introduced to the market.  Old ones are constantly being "tweaked" or enhanced.

Plus, changes may also have occurred within your life that may have altered the ability of your current mortgage to best serve your needs.  Think about all those things that may have taken place in your life ... or regarding your property ... since you originally closed on your mortgage. 

Have you:

  • Changed jobs?  
  • Seen an increase or decrease in pay?
  • Added a spouse?
  • Expanded your family?
  • Improved your credit standing?
  • Seen an increase in the equity of your home?
  • Seen property tax increases?
  • Had a child near college age?
  • Started a business?
  • Paid-off a car ... or had to buy one?
  • More?

Also, do you wonder if:

  • You could Sell ... then Buy a new home?
  • You could Refinance?
  • Pay off credit card debt?
  • Shorten your mortgage term?
  • Update or remodel your home?
  • Convert your Adjustable-Rate Mortgage (ARM) to a Fixed-Rate Mortgage?
  • Eliminate Private Mortgage Insurance?
  • More?

With all the variables in play (both in your life and in mortgages themselves), it could prove well worth your time and effort to have a conversation regarding your present mortgage.  Options may exist ... opportunities may await you. 


A conversation with me (your own LO) would give you an opportunity to ask some timely and important financial, lending, and credit questions.  Do some fact finding.

Bottomline, if there's a way for you to: 

  • SAVE money 
  • ACCOMPLISH goals 
  • INCREASE the value of your home
  • REDUCE stress 
  • ADDRESS other debts
  • CEMENT a fixed interest rate
  • EXPAND on the joy of living in your home 
  • ANSWER the questions you have

It's wise to at least try ...

If it's been a while since we talked or since you closed on your Will County - Chicagoland home loan, it's time to get your mortgage review.  Let's find out if you have new and better options available to you.  There's no cost to do so.

Please contact me for answers to obtain answers to your questions ... and for an analysis of your mortgage soon ...

Love Your New Construction ... But Educate Yourself About Future Tax Bills

*I want to preface this article by saying it's geography specific to the Chicagoland Area and its collar counties ...


So you've opted for building or buying a newly constructed home ... 

You've decided you'll invest most, or all, of your savings to cover Down Payment and Closing Costs.After all, it's a new home, you hopefully won't need money for repairs or improvements for quite a while, right?  

Plus:  The property taxes for your newly constructed home will initially be lower, as they'll be based upon the vacant lot on which your new home is built.  (The new home wasn't completed yet for the previous tax year's bill.) 

But how does this affectyour future tax bill and the tax portion of your monthly mortgage escrow payment?

When obtaining financing:  During your first year of a new construction occupancy, the real estate tax portion of your escrow account is based upon the last av…

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.
