The brighter side of a divorce

Divorce is awful. There’s no other way to describe it. More than half of the people you’ll meet today have been through a divorce. Maybe even you. As much agony as families have with divorce, sometimes there’s a bright side. The part that comes after… after healing, after a reset. The kind of hope that comes with a 2nd chance. That’s exactly the kind of bright side that we helped one borrower have recently.  Removing a Spouse from a Mortgage Post Divorce She came to us after the divorce. We had helped her and her ex-husband buy the home they [...]

FHA stands for “Families At Home for the Holidays”… sort of!

The government has FHA all mixed up… They call it “Federal Housing Administration”, but this year we’re calling it “FAH” which is “Families at Home (for the Holidays)”! That’s because this past month, we had one of the most heartwarming stories we’ve ever had… A young couple came to us wanting to buy a home. They were a sweet couple, hardworking and good renters with a baby on the way. The problem? They had limited credit… like no-scores credit. Now, in some cases we work on building credit for these types of borrowers. But for this couple we wound up [...]

Having a local lender matters – even on VA loans

Despite all the advances in technology, some things are still better when they’re local. Like BBQ. Or pizza. Or mortgage loans. We recently had a mother and daughter come to us who were trying to buy a home. And can I tell you, they were SERIOUSLY frustrated! They tried to get a home for 6 months and had put in offers on 4 different houses. But none of them were accepted! Seems hard to believe, right? As we dug into their situation, we learned that their approval letter was from one of the big, online lenders. After talking to their [...]

Can Netflix help you get mortgaged and married?

We see it all the time… that certain look in a borrower's eyes when they’ve been turned down for a mortgage loan in the past. It’s a lack of confidence. An “I’ll give it one more shot” kind of look. We love meeting these types of folks. Folks that never give up. Folks like a recent borrower of ours who came to us for that “last shot”. They were trying to buy their first home but had been turned down 3 times in the last few months. Someone told him he might still be able to get a loan from [...]

Sight Unseen

Quick… think of some things you’d sign up for “sight unseen”. Buying a book on Amazon? Probably. Buying a bottle of a brand of whiskey you’ve never tried before? Maybe. Buying a new car without driving it? OK probably not. What about getting a mortgage loan or buying a house? Sounds scary? It doesn’t have to be! Buying a Memphis Home While Stationed in Japan We recently worked with an active duty military borrower who was being relocated to Memphis from where he’s been stationed in Japan. He was looking for a VA loan for his young family as they [...]
