Yes! Movie tickets, 2 hours at the spa, 10 rides at your local "iFly", etc. Bottom line: You know your clients. Find out what they do to reward/pamper themselves and give them that!

Hope this helps!

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.

went above and beyond his responsibilities as the pre-approval process continued offering credit improvement tips and ways to secure the best loan possible at the best interest rate available.

After approval and time for the loan, we ran into a problem with missing documents we needed to close the loan.

offered advice on how to best solve the problem with the bank. When the underwriters took to long reviewing our file,

We highly recommend

and
Crystal Lake Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked

She proceeded to find us a loan package tailored to our needs that went beyond what we had hoped for - with surprisingly favorable terms.

is very knowledgeable, professional, efficient, and responsive. Our application process went smoothly via phone and email. She talked us through the terms of the loan initially, and again before closing, to ensure that we understood it.

I refinanced my mortgage to a shorter term and lower rate and pulled some cash out for home improvements.
Crystal Lake Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
was easy to work with and gave good advice. She was very responsive by phone and email. Documents were sent to me via email and sent back overnight mail. It was about as painless as can be expected, other than some standard agonizing over rate lock. (Greek debt crisis did not entirely work in my favor timing-wise, but I got a good rate.) The whole process took about four weeks.

It went great! And as close to perfect as possible. Everything in
Crystal Lake Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
's control went just as promised, even though this was during the Christmas season. The only hitch we had was with an appraiser who was very much on the conservative side, and even though the appraisal came in lower than anticipated,
Crystal Lake Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
was still able to help us out. We rolled the equity line into the mortgage, as well as some high interest credit cards, for just under what we had been paying for the mortgage alone. Needless to say, this has saved us a good deal of money since. I can't recommend him highly enough. And did I mention that this was during the Christmas season! He was always available, even taking calls when he was home (in England) for the holidays. He's definitely our mortgage broker from here on out.

On June 2, 2014 I submitted a completed application and ALL THE FINANCIAL INFORMATION the mortgage lender requested. My wife and I are both retired, have saved almost seven figures in the bank, had credit scores over 800, and had purchased many homes in the years we have been married. Our credit is ideal.....100% gold. I thought we would sail through the process and have no problems wit

18 th, a Saturday night, I received a call and was told there were 30+ conditions the underwriters had to have met in order for the loan to close. They had my complete financial history for over 7 weeks, and now, 3 days before the close they need all these conditions met. Much of the information I was asked to supply, was information I had ALREADY given them........guess they "misplaced" it. Some of what they wanted was just ridiculous..... For instances......I deposited $16,000 into my checking to cover house cost....we built a $300,000+ home and had to come up with over $100,000 at closing, so we were moving money into our checking account from investment accounts. Anyhow, on the $16,000 I moved into checking, I took $100 in cash so my wife and I could have lunch. When

Both the title company and the builder said that in 15 years of home building they had never heard of such a thing. We finally found an attorney at the builders office and they

My bank was disappointing so I researched and
Crystal Lake Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
has the best reviews by far of all the refinance options. Shahram and
Crystal Lake Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
answered all my questions. I did the whole loan process via phone, internet, and the traveling notary that came to my home. This was the easiest refinance I have ever done. What impressed me was ALL the people involved are wonderful to deal with. You get the best service and the lowest rates. This is the best customer service I have experienced so far. His website is wonderful and accurate.
