I was able to help Derek and Haily (pictured, 2nd and 3rd from left) purchase their very first home under our special 3% down program with no Mortgage Insurance (PMI)! This program eliminated nearly $100/month from their monthly payment, AND reduced their out-of-pocket expenses, which enabled them to do a couple home-repair projects that they otherwise would have had to save for and put off for months or years. Not only did I get the privilege to help another couple purchase their very first home together, but I also got the privilege of working with attorney, Lehn Shephard, and real estate broker, Tanya Vogel, once again. Lehn and Tanya like a “dream team,” and are always a pleasure to work with.
It’s important that certain borrowers understand MIP. This article explains its purpose and how it works.
When Chris and Kaitlyn (pictured) came to me at the suggestion of their excellent real estate broker, Christine Hauck (pictured, far-right), they were not only relieved that I was able to significantly reduce their closing costs compared to the other lender they had talked to, but also because they knew of me through friends and family! This connection made the approval and closing process that much more joyful. Kaitlyn and Chris were and absolute pleasure to work with, and it was great seeing big smiles on their faces at closing when they received the keys to their very first home!
