The Closing is over, and everyone is happy, but it is not the end of the home ownership process, nor is it the end of my involvement with my Borrowers. In many ways this is the start of what I will be doing for them in what I refer to as The Post ClosingYears. This is the start of me being their for them as long as they have this mortgage. Starting at this point I make a commitment to them to be there to answer any questions that they may have from this point forward. I also commit to staying in touch with them and making them aware of options that may come along during The Post ClosingYears on their mortgage.
Staying in touch with my Borrowers during The Post ClosingYears is extremely important to me, and will prove to be of value to them as well. As time passes there will be opportunities that may be a benefit to my Borrowers to may be lower their monthly payment. This may be because interest rates have improved, or they have started out with Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) as part of their mortgage payment, and have now reached a point that we should see if it can be removed.
I stay in contact with my Borrowers during The Post Closing Years by contacting them yearly to review their mortgage, what I refer to as a Mortgage Inspection. A Mortgage Inspection only take a few minutes, but can reveal several opportunities for my Borrowers to take advantage of.
I also use a program called Mortgage Returns, which allows me to set criteria that will notify me that I need to contact my Borrowers to notify them of a benefit that may be available to them at this time. Mortgage Returns also allows me to automatically send my Borrowers birthday and anniversary cards, as well as many other things that keep me in touch with my them.
By keeping in touch with my Borrowers through ThePost ClosingYears I believe is a major benefit to both me and my Borrowers. They do not have to wonder who to call when they have a question on their mortgage, and they can be assured that if an option on their mortgage comes along that I will be there to tell them about it. Staying in touch with my Borrowers through The Post Closing Years will also provide me with the opportunity to be there when they are ready to purchase again, or need to refinance.
As you can see The Closing was just a new beginning, and not the end to the value that I will bring to my Borrowers. ThePost ClosingYears are years that I look forward to with each and everyone of my Borrowres, and a partnership that I hope last for many years.
