Really liked my loan officer, everyone else, not so much. After signing an agreement and memo for record stating I will occupy the house with in 60 days, they still were demanding for me to put in my notice to my rental office. I explained that if the house fell through, or got delayed, my family will be homeless. There was literally no other issues, so why do we need to risk being homeless? This is a unnecessary requirement that only put us at risk, not very ethical for a company that uses the word "Veterans" in it's name.

Quick negative response

I was surprise how fast I got a phone call from IFreedom, but asked one question about my home being a mobile/manufactured home, and it was over at that point. Seems to be the trend. NO MORE MOBILE HOME FINANCING.
