Shopping for the lowest rate when looking for a lender could be a detriment to your homebuying experience. There is much more that goes into a positive homebuying experience than the mortgage price tag. If you place a value on communication, timeliness, accuracy, and efficiency, you shouldn’t just browse for the lowest interest rate. In a 2016 study, a J.D. Power survey found a significant segment of homeowners (21%) were dissatisfied with their choice of mortgage lender. And the disappointment is even worse for first-time homebuyers (27%). Don’t be part of the statistic. Here are other characteristics you should look for in your lending company:
Homebuying can be a daunting process, and the way you are treated by your mortgage company could make or break your experience. Reliable customer service guiding you through the mortgage experience can make this landmark event in your life more exciting than scary.
Eagle provides top-notch customer service. You can expect direct access to senior Management for those “out of the box” situations, assistance on weekends and after hours, and a local presence in the market.
Partnership with Your Homebuilder
Will your lending company work with, or against, your homebuilder? The former will create a seamless end to end process for the buyer whereas the latter could spell disaster. Eagle is part of the Lennar family of companies and has direct communication with Lennar & its affiliated title company. This gives you the chance to work with a lender that partners with your builder and knows the new build process inside and out. Eagle offers a variety of products that are suited for new builds and has expansive knowledge of the process.
While lender delays are common, searching for the right lender could help minimize this hurdle. There could be a number of reasons why lenders drag their feet, from low appraisals, to issues with title work. No matter the reason, it’s frustrating and discouraging. Eagle Home Mortgage is able to avoid these common issues due to our knowledge of the process and relationship with Lennar. In-house processing and underwriting combined with communication with the builder throughout the process means seamless processing and quick closings.
