Get your Home Mortgage from a local bank! - 12/30/09 03:09 PM
My friend Waylon who lives in Boulder Colorado, had a great post on his blog entitled, "A New Year's Resolution worth Considering." You know as a real estate agent I deal with people trying to get mortgages all the time. Just in the last month I had two qualified buyers, with good jobs, be told the big NO to their mortgage application by BMO, in this case. Let's help the economy in Nova Scotia by banking locally. Personally I use one of the credit unions in town. Here is the great video worth watching from Waylon's post. (2 comments)
