Joe Petrowsky in Connecticut wrote this great blog about how he saved multiple transactions when other lenders were going to let them fall apart.   Having the right lender who knows what he/she is doing and the different loan products, and how they fit with specific purchases is essential right n...

It seems lately there is a huge disconnect between lenders and sales contracts.   I wonder sometimes why the lender even asks for a copy of the contract, as it seems to be irrelevant to the transaction.    The last two closings I have had on condos for my listings (I must emphasize listings here ...
