Tell us about your fastest loan: A couple was due to have a baby within the next month and looking to purchase their first home, so of course we were against the clock. Luckily, we were able to qualify them and they moved in — with a few days to spare! They were so happy the purchase transaction was smooth they stopped by SESLOC to thank me, and let me meet their newborn daughter. Such a treat!
Best advice for first-time home buyers: You want to feel comfortable with your new housing payment. You might qualify for a higher mortgage, but would you still be able to do the things you love with a higher monthly payment? Be sure to consider your desires versus your needs, and how a monthly mortgage may impact your lifestyle.

Home Buying Tips
From the News+ Blog
When it comes to buying a house, poor credit can limit your opportunities and result in higher interest rates and bigger payments. But with a little planning, you can boost your credit score ahead of your home loan pre-approval so you’ll be ready to make an offer on your dream home.
Buying a home? You’ve probably heard that getting pre-approved or pre-qualified for a loan is an essential step forward in the process. But what’s the difference?
What are mortgage points and are they right for you? Mortgage points are basically discount points. When you’re getting your home loan, you can buy mortgage points to lower your rate and save you interest in the long run.
