Don't You Think I'm Sexy???

If Not, You Should



Americans are fascinated with houses.  The internet, advertising, magazine racks, and TV viewing schedules revolve around them.



No matter whether it's buying, building, repairing, remodeling, decorating, flipping, investing, improving, beautifying ... whew, it's covered in loving detail.  There's a never-ending array and supply of conversation, advice, video, showcases, websites, and instruction surrounding each. 


And who can blame people for being so fascinated? 


Besides being beautiful, homes or "home" inspire us.  They are fodder for dreams. 


They provide us protection and security, both literally and in the financial sense.  They wrap us in a sense of family and much much more.



In today's world, that means they're "sexy" ...  


They're appealing, exciting, intriguing, stimulating.  Sexy is good.  Sexy draws attention.  Sexy keeps someone's attention.


But what of the plans, preparation, and methods for financing those homes, their building, repair and remodeling?  Oooooo ... most don't consider that sexy. 


And THAT'S a huge problem ...


As a Mortgage Originator ...  


  • How do I make my services and advice seem "sexy" to those hoping to buy, refinance, construct, or invest in a home? 
  • How do I get a potential buyer/homeowner's attention and keep it? 
  • How do I get them to respond?
  • How do I inspire them to plan, prepare, and perform before and during their mortgage process?


Mortgages are the method through which most people are able to acquire their beautiful homes.  And I add ... the dreams, their sense of security sought, their feeling of "home" or family, etc.


So mortgages and the mortgage process need to be considered "sexy" too.  Mind-

boggling sexy.




Because as your Mortgage Originator I need you to find mortgages and the mortgage

process sexy.  I need you down right excited about them. 


I need your full and complete attention for your financing.  Through every step of the mortgage process. 


And I need you to respond.  Dare I say it?  To perform.  In a timely manner.  Frustration, stress, and anxiety is sure to set in otherwise.  No one wants that.


So I ask ... "Do you think mortgages and financing are sexy?"  


To successfully gain the home of your dreams ... either through purchase, remodeling, or improvements made over time ... your answer should be a loud and enthusiastic "YES"!


Contact me when you're in need of Mortgage info or service when buying, refinancing, or investing in a home in New Lenox - or elsewhere in  Chicagoland - IL & WI. 

I'll be happy to put my 40+ years of mortgage experience and expertise hard to work on your behalf.

Gene Mundt, IL/WI Mortgage Originator - FHA/VA/Conv/Jumbo/Portfolio/Refi - Sexy is definitely an attention getter! You succeeded in making a very important statement and you said it so well! Sexy does sell but sexy doesn't last forever, and often, if it is a pre-existing home that was beautifully staged, it may create buyer's remorse when they see the naked truth after the buyers receive the keys. Sexy can be just an allusion. 

Congratulations on a terrific Featured post!

Well done Gene!!!  You make an excellent point. Yes houses can be sexy but when most people think of mortgages and getting one, sexy does not come to mind.

Great post and great title!

I had a friend years ago who over used the word....she referred to almost everything as "sexy" an embarrassing fault.

Smart is sexy. Follow-through is sexy. We tell our buyers to expect a lot of paperwork requests and that the more compliant and expedient they are, the better for all - especially them. I appreciate the post and the title certainly got all of our attention. :)

Gene, love your title and the message leaves a lasting impact. Prompt is sexy, especially when it comes to obtaining a mortgage. Your post made me think, mortgages really should be looked at as sexy because they're the vehicle that gets homeowners the keys to that sexy home. It's the total package!

What a coincidence - seeing this great blog when one of my short sale files fell apart today!  Your message of being timely hit home.  The lender denied the short sale contract for the seller and my buyer did not act in a timely manner.  He had the opportunity to buy the condo for a higher price before it went back on the market at an even higher price.  He failed to respond to me during a 10 day period and the listing agent, rightly so, put it back on the market today and within an hour it was sold.  Ugh!  Great post as always Gene!
