Some good information for anyone looking to apply for a mortgage loan:

 

 

What You DON'T Know CAN Hurt You

When Applying For a Mortgage 

 

Are you familiar with the saying, "What you don't know can't hurt you?"  

 

According to the  "Oxford Dictionary of Proverbs", it's derived from the saying ... "So long as I know it not, it hurteth mee not" ... first seen in literature around 1576 and continuously thereafter.  So the saying and it's message has definitely been around awhile.

 

But what does this old saying mean?  

 

Historically it's meant that someone can't be made frustrated or unhappy by something they don't know.  It relieves people of worry and perhaps, even to a smaller extent, some responsibility.

But as a Mortgage Originator, I'm here to tell you that ...  

 

When it comes to planning,  buying, entering, or navigating the mortgage and home buying process(es) ... what you don't know certainly can hurt you. 

 

And frustrate you.  And cost you your time.  And cost you big money.

 

In the modern mortgage world, blindly starting the process to buy and finance a home prior to taking the time to educate and familiarize yourself to the process and the actions that will be expected of you is risky. 

 

Whether it be in time, stress, or money ... it can and will cost you to some degree.  So it's important for all hopeful home buyers and borrowers to proactively educate and familiarize themselves regarding the steps of the mortgage process and home buying topics.  

 

What are some of the most important things to know? 

 

 

Following are some of those things it's most helpful to learn about and know prior to starting your mortgage and home buying process:

 

 

The information and steps mentioned above (and more) are extremely important to know for anyone taking out a mortgage or buying a home.  NOT knowing about them, at minimum, will certainly make the process more challenging and stressful.

 

Buying and financing a home is supposed to be a happy and exciting time in your life.  Why risk taking the joy out of it or putting yourself in a vulnerable financial or legal position? 

 

Take the time to do some research online.  Do some reading.  Tackle the homework and preparation needed.  And don't be afraid to ask questions.  

 

Thoroughly educate and familiarize yourself to what lies ahead.  What you learn is your best protection and the fastest route to finding the success you seek.  You'll definitely enjoy your home buying and financing experience far more too.

 

The ball is in your court.  No one can do it for you.
