NATIONAL MORTGAGE

PROFESSIONAL MONTH Every September, National Mortgage Professional Month recognizes the professionals who play a role in helping people finance the dream of homeownership. Since 2011, home sales in the United States have steadily grown, meaning each year more and more people are buying a home. Whether it’s a first home or the next home, mortgage professions understand how exciting and stressful the process can be. A mortgage professional takes on the task of making sure everything is in place by closing day. They may be loan officers, processors, underwriters, servicers, insurers, or other mortgage professionals, but all of them work hard to make your home loan a reality. 6 WNC Homes & Real Estate | Volume 33 Issue 10

THEIR VARIED ROLES MAY INCLUDE:

HOW TO OBSERVE #MortgageProfessionalMonth

• • • • • •

During September, give a mortgage professional you know a shout-out. Recommend them to someone who is looking for a new home. Let them know you appreciate all they do to help people achieve homeownership. If you’re considering purchasing a home, learn about the process and what to expect.

Reviewing loan applications Verifying credit Processing loan applications Appraising the property Examining the title Verifying the purchase price, annual percentage rate, and term of the loan Preparing the loan

Most people are not aware of the number of people and amount of work involved between the moment someone decides to buy a home and the day the final contracts are signed.
