"Subject: Potomac Partners Update: FHA Premium Reduction Likely To Be Rescinded & Updated

lenders: Follow the Basics When Checking Your Credit Scores - 01/10/17 05:31 AM
If you plan on purchasing a large ticket item like a new vehicle, land, or house, it is good to know your credit score ahead of time. But where you get those credit scores from can make a huge difference to lenders. So if you are planning on buying a home, stick with proven basics.

lenders: Update Ocwen Mortgage Settlement = Two Billion in Principal Reductions - 03/08/14 11:03 PM
 The known criminal activity in the mortgage industry is enough to make anyone sick. It wasn't just OCWEN that was engaging in fraud and wrongly foreclosing on a huge number of mortgages. This garbabe was standard procedure with several large lenders. Why are these lenders allowed to continue in business? The evidence is clear that they basically stole billions of dollars from consumers across the country. Why would anyone want OCWEN servicing their loan?

With new construction, the builder has reasons for wanting you to … (0 comments)

lenders: Use a Local Lender With Local Knowledge and Local Experience - 05/17/13 12:31 AM
I just talked with someone this morning. They had wanted to buy a lot in Pine Grove / Bluemont which is in Western Loudoun maybe 15-20 minutes West of Purcellville VA. They have their plans to build a new home on the lot and had estimate from builder. Total cost for lot, well, septic, and new construction of house, and related items like driveway, power, etc. came to $258,000.00. It's not easy to buy a lot and build in Loudoun county for $258,000.00, but it can be done. So it was hard to believe when their " lender" came back and … (33 comments)
