Run to a Reputable Lender and Avoid Being Dragged Under

In my 30 years career as a Realtor, this is one of the worst closings I have experienced in MANY years. This loan has been under contract now for 10 weeks and still there is no Clear To Close!! Every demand for information from both the Buyer and the Seller have been met promptly and yet they keep coming back requiting more totally ridiculous minutia. Buyers are sitting in a hotel and Sellers are making vacant house payments. The loan officer will not return any calls and everyone involved in this transaction is suffering from the ineptness and incompetent skills on the part of this lender! No matter how many incentives this lender offers, RUN away and find a lender who knows how to get the loan closed! DO NOT Recommend this Lender.

2 Years of Document after Document

After 2 years of supplying document after document – multiple times… after 2 years and four loan officers… after 2 years of being told, “I think we’re about done and we should be good with everything”, only to be sent another list of 10 more documents you want… WE ARE DONE!!
I have never experienced a mortgage lending institution that makes it completely impossible to obtain a mortgage… and for a messily $62k. Maybe that has been the issue all along. The lending amount is only $62k and this is a waste of time for your organization from a commission and profit return perspective.
We were reassured that before he left for deployment, this matter would all be resolved. Now, 2 days before he deploys you send another list of required documents that is impossible for him to get together while trying to prepare for deployment. So much for supporting those brave military folks that put their lives on the line to protect the freedoms you enjoy.
