Mortgage Information

If you're like most buyers, a home is the most expensive purchase you'll ever make, and you'll probably need some form of financing.

There are many lending institutions that offer a variety of mortgage products. Financing options and rates can vary widely, so it is important to do your research and shop around to ensure you get the mortgage that best meets your needs at the best price.

I would be happy to refer you to some very good mortgage contacts I have or to help you in any other way I can to secure the best possible rate for your home purchase.

Bette's Preferred Lenders

I work with several excellent mortgage lenders who can meet with you in my office or at another mutually convenient place. They can also work with you by telephone, fax, mail, e-mail or online. By working with a lender with whom your realtor has a relationship, you have a better chance of getting the job done well and done quickly. These lenders know me, are responsive to my calls for information on the progress of your loan, and want to do a good job for my clients in order to continue getting my referrals. Here is a list of the names and contact information for my preferred list of lenders.
