It was about a year ago I had a closing crash and burn. The reason was simple - the lender in New York had no clue about the local market. It was also frequently general pain when communication was required - which is often the case as a real estate closing approaches!
As January 2011 approaches I have another closing rescheduled from the first week of January but that is not a problem. You see,
- The lender is local.
- The lender is a real person.
- The lender has a real office.
We will close in mid-month which is good and further reinforces my sentiment regarding mortgage lenders....
I always encourage my buyer clients to use a lender from the immediate area.
I know several lenders in the Melbourne, Rockledge and Viera areas of Brevard County, Florida call me or try Google search when you're ready to buy a house in Brevard County, Florida.
I have only one preference – local.
