The ‘big guy’ mortgage lenders are getting a reality check. When the economy went sour a few years ago their names were associated with some of the biggest crashes in this decade. The ‘small guys’ became a bright spot in the home buyers eyes. The independent lending companies maintained their reputation and their personal service didn’t hurt them either.
The healed economy and employment rate are bringing the giants back into the picture but down to earth mortgage lenders stayed steadfast and relentless even when the government was shut down. They kept right on requesting required information, filling out paperwork, and believing in the American dream helping new home buyers get the properties they yearned for. I think patience was really the key here but whatever it was, it worked.
I guess the point here is, follow your gut feeling, investigate the options, and don’t give up on making a property purchase. Lenders large and small can take you to your new doorstep. Finding a super Realtor can get you in the home you’re looking for, point you in the direction of a reputable lender and can help with all the little things that can consume your time.
