"Recently, my wife and I were shopping for a mortgage to refinance our primary residence. If you have gone through this process in the past, you know that it can" be comparable to a root canal without anesthetics.
and his team went above and beyond to help us consider the best choices for us. They provided the following: - A comprehensive overview of our current mortgage - Various mortgage options and financial models to review amortization tables of each - Programs to help us consider the impact of additional payments over the life of the loan to help us look at various payoff models - Options in determining what makes the best sense for us - proposing programs outside of the standard 15 or 30 year 'packages' - Rates that bested those provided by our own local credit union which we have been members of for years At the end of the day,
and his team were more interested in helping us evaluate the program(s) that work best for us, and not what would allow them to get the 'deal' done more quickly. Their 'customer-first' approach is a rarity in a consumer
driven by a turn-and-burn mentality. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

"She said she regretted not being able to help us but said that if she discovered a lender who could handle our mortgage she would contact me. This is a very standard" parting good bye and i would have expected never to hear from her again. Most "no" answers don't even get that far. In fact the other mortgage lenders we dealt with never even got back to us with a no - they just never called us back and that was the no answer. Three days later
called me with a bank that offered the best
for a mortgage. they keep their loans in house and underwrite within more intelligent and common sense guidelines. She had no working relationship with them as lender but provided me the info so i could go to them directly. This is service way beyond what most people would expect. i don't know how much more someone could do in order to get a positive review. Whether we get the mortgage or not is irrelevant, it was the thought and effort.

As prime real estate season approaches, and you ready your house for the market, you might be tempted to forgo hiring a Realtor and represent the listing yourself. After all, how hard can it be to sell your own home?

As with anything like this, some are scams, some legit but poorly organized or run, some legit. There are a few new companies set up by hedge funds just getting into rentals and into buying foreclosed properties in good shape, which they then rent or lease and will, in some cases, allow rent to partly apply to purchase.

 

Before you even think about this type of arrangement, you should have it THOROUGHLY reviewed by a lawyer, because once you get into it you will be stuck, and most likely there will be a LOT of terms restricting your investment. Considering the average person moves every 5 years or so for employment or family or medical reasons, and generally these sort of arrangements have to be carried through to completion to get ANY of your investment back out of the deal, it is generally a losing proposition for almost everyone - a fact the companies count on.

I have been a Realtor in
Albany Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
for over 10 years and I have tried many different mortgage loan officers. After working with
Albany Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
on many challenging closings, I would not consider using anybody else.
Albany Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
is very responsive to emails and phone calls which is very important when there is money on the line and is my client's biggest purchase of their lifetime. He is a straight shooter and values every customer whether they are getting a loan for $100,000 or 1,000,000.

The entire transaction was very easy. A lot of paperwork but that is part of the refinancing puzzle. Once my paperwork was complete

found me a new lender with better rates with the same terms. My wife & I went to Trinity Title, signed the paperwork and began saving money each month. Easy does it.

This is the second time that I have worked with
Albany Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
,
Albany Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
, and team in the last two years and I can't say enough about the experience! First of all the rate and terms provided were the best that I had seen in the marketplace (I was able to reduce my rate, remove my PMI, and get a 4,000 lender credit towards my refinance more than offsetting the costs of the refi and title company charges).

Secondly (and just as important), they were in frequent communication with me throughout the process. They even monitored the rates and were able to get me an addition 1/8th of a percent lower right before the rates moved up again! I would highly recommend them and always do so for friends and family buying or refinancing.

As two working parents with young children, my husband and I thought we would never have time to refinance our home loan. It seemed like it would be such a hassle to shop rates, talk to lenders and pull together all of the required information.
Albany Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
made it so
Albany Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
. He had an easy to follow checklist and made a point to touch base and keep us updated on the status of things. He was professional, kind and always took the time to answer our questions. I always felt that he had our best interests in mind. In addition, the whole process was very low stress and quick! Thanks to

Though I’d just bought my home (and worked with
Albany Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
for my mortgage) rates dropped enough 6 months later to make a difference in my payments. I got back in touch with
Albany Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
and quickly was able to lock-in the lower rate before they crept back up.
Albany Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
works fast, and is very responsive to requests. He was helpful through the process of refinancing and was able to move things along quickly. My experience with refinancing is that you can have a rate lock for 45 days and then you have a decent amount of time to schedule an appraisal and then closing. In my case I wanted everything to happen sooner rather than later and
Albany Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
and his team were able to make it happen. I absolutely recommend them!

I have been following mortgage rates for some time, and I noticed that
Albany Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
was often the best rate.
Thinking that it was another bait-and-switch, I ignored them for a while, but when rates started falling I decided to give them a call to find out if they would honor the advertised rates posted on Zillow.com.
Sure enough Chip said they would honor that and even provided some alternative mixes of rates and closing costs.
In the end Chip was able to get me a 3/8 reduction in my mortgage with ZERO closing costs. This included his lender fees, and third-party fees that often creep in. Basically he was able to get me a rate that had a lender credit to cover all of those costs.
Working through the process was painless- it was the smoothest of the 3 refi's I've been through.
Everyone I dealt with in the process was excellent, from Chip who I worked with for the application and getting the rate,
Albany Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
who handled all of the paperwork, to the appraiser and closing law firm.
They use a secure portal for exchanging documents and files, so you don't need to send your taxes through email like some others.
The closing took 30 minutes and we were able to do it one evening after work.
I have already recommended
Albany Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
to friends, and will continue to do so.
