What You Need To Know If You Want To Buy A House In The Next 5 Years

Nearly half, 49%, of U.S. adults who currently do not own a home say they plan to purchase one within the next five years, according to a new Gallup Poll. The results, based on interviews with 502 non-homeowners, also showed that an additional 20% of people say they plan to purchase a home in the

Mission nearly impossible this spring: finding a home to buy

Anyone eager to buy a home this spring probably has reasons to feel good. The job market is solid. Average pay is rising. And mortgage rates, even after edging up of late, are still near historic lows. And then there’s the bad news: Just try to find a house. The national supply of homes for

US home prices rose in January by most in 2 ½ years

U.S. home prices jumped in January from a year earlier at the fastest pace in nearly 2 ? years, as a tight supply of houses for sale spurred bidding wars in many cities. The Standard & Poor’s CoreLogic Case-Shiller 20-city home price index, released Tuesday , increased 5.7 percent in January, the most since July

The surprising way rising interest rates could affect the housing market

After the Federal Reserve raised the Fed Funds rate by a quarter of a point last week, the real estate industry fretted over the potential effects of higher mortgage rates on home affordability, and how that could curtail the still-wobbly recovery of the U.S. housing market. So far, there’s been no sign that the market

How Rising Interest Rates Can Impact Your Mortgage and Housing Affordability

Now that the Federal Reserve’s Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) has voted to raise interest rates for the first time in 2017, it is important to consider what this might mean for borrowers. Specifically, home buyers. The first thing to consider is that there likely will be one or two more rate hikes in 2017,

Higher Interest Rates – Oh, Goodie!

The press is fairly slavering for the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates. You can hardly read an item in the business pages without some commentator declaring that, at last, the unemployment rate is low enough and the growth rate high enough that the Fed can tighten money… and choke off further progress. Hosannas! But

Many borrowers say the mortgage process is a major pain

Could getting a home mortgage under today’s post-housing-bust regulations and procedures be even remotely comparable to going to the dentist to get drilled? Or is it anything like having your annual physical, where every body part may be subject to inspection and prodding? At a time of super-strict underwriting standards, record-high credit-score requirements and hard-wired

Unexpected costs when we built our own home

Building a home is an exciting adventure. Like buying a resale home, it is a major purchase that requires serious thought and analysis prior to pulling the trigger. Some people might be surprised by some of the hidden costs of purchasing or building a brand new home. My wife and I recently went through the

Lori and her team were able to complete my mortgage - start to finish - in 23 days. That is unheard of in this industry where it normally takes 30-60 days, minimum. They were also able to help me write up not one, not two, but four offers on houses within that time period, providing the necessary paperwork promptly each time. But most importantly, Lori and her team were friendly, warm, compassionate, and understanding, on top of being professional and efficient. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Profoundly knowledgeable and professional.

Lori Anderson, Ashlynn Kelso, and the team @ Georgetown Mortgage, I know how lending guidelines make any conforming loan a difficult process these days. I truly believe these two refi's wouldn't have been this smooth, or closed at all, anywhere else. I have, and will continue to refer anyone looking for a loan in TX to you guys. Thank you so much!

We cannot speak highly enough of our experiences in working with Lori Anderson to arrange financing for our new home. For most of the process, we were in a different city from Lori, but she used technology to make us feel like we're in the same town. We felt as though we had a personal relationship with Lori. She could not have been more supportive, patient, and positive. I encourage anyone purchasing a home to contact Lori Anderson.

We couldn’t be happier.

A big thank you to Lori Anderson and her team. We couldn’t be happier with Georgetown Mortgage.
