Refinancing your home – beware of scams

How many letters with offers to refinance your homeMailboxes did you receive in the mail last week? Was one of them from the bank your current mortgage is with? The last one seems like a good option to refinance your loan. There is the promise of an easy process and you would think there would be less paperwork involved… NOT.

Recently I am hearing more and more homeowners frustrated by their bank: the promise of less paperwork, less hassle is an empty one. You will end up working with a junior loan officer who quite frankly doesn’t have the¬†wherewithal to help you with the process.

BETTER option: contact your favorite mortgage person, or if you don’t have one, ask your realtor. First of all, working with a lender who knows what he/she is doing is not more expensive – I have done the math- but more important, you are sure you have the best mortgage product that suits your situation. Besides this, the whole process less frustrating, as a matter of fact it will be a pleasant experience.

Locally, yours truly can highly recommend a few local lenders who are really good at what they are doing, one of them is Darren Seliga, he is a Mortgage Broker. Just give him a call and tell him I told you to do so. His phone no: 707-577-8737.
