Anyone in the market for a home wants to do everything they can to close the deal, especially in a market with low supply and competitive bidding. It’s common that not only will your real estate agent help with that, but they’ll do so in tandem with a mortgage lender.
The main focus for today’s show is on the agent-lender relationship and what benefits a strong team can provide a homebuyer. When you have two people who communicate frequently and work towards the same goal, you find ways to put together the best possible offer. Bill will tell you three big benefits that can come from this and share how Cross Country Mortgage has built relationships with agents throughout the community through years and years of work.
Plus, there’s plenty to talk about as we head into the month of September in terms of interest rates and what the latest uptick means. Find out what Bill thinks about these recent trends and hear what people have been asking about the most in our meetings. And we’ll close out the show with a great question on new home construction and securing a mortgage for that versus an existing home.
