A conversation about mortgages and buyer behaviours

Real Estate Agent with Long & Foster Real Estate Inc 610-225-7400 PA License - AB067198

We all know what we should do, most of us though, don't do what we know we should or we even sometimes do the opposite. Where a mortgage is concerned that can be disasterous if you want to buy a home.

I had a conversation with Shawn DeAngelo of Prosperity Home Mortgages this week about some do's and don'ts when applying for a mortgage, watch our video, admittedly a litte long but packed with information and share any that you can think of that might derail a mortgage in the comments.

We have missed you, and the music.  What a wonderful idea to film a video on do's and don't's when it come to mortgages.  Wish you great success with this.  A

Getting a mortgage should not be as difficult as it is sometimes and there shouldn't be hidden penalties that people should have to be worried about.  It should be a simple process and one should know whether they qualify or not before they even begin the process.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel we have been busy with snow and I have been a little more focused on making calls to my sphere and following up on contacts. So, that has resulted in less time for blog posts, especially ones with music.

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 all part of a series I am running this year, approaching topics to do with buying a house.

Joe Manausa thank you, I appreciate your comments.

James Dray you will know most of it, this is really for those people who are starting the process or have not bought in a while.

Brian England totally agree, and what is frustrating to most is they do not understand how the game is played, so get frustrated when applying or calling mortgage providers.
