Choosing the 'Right Lender': Why It Matters More Than You Think

When it comes to buying a home, the mortgage lender you choose has a tremendous impact on your home-buying journey. Your lender becomes your partner in this endeavor, offering up the financial products, guidance, and expertise you're going to rely on to become a happy homeowner. As you might expect, a great partnership often leads to a great overall experience. But why does it matter so much whom you partner with, and what strategic advantages should you look for in a lender? Let's explore these questions using Prosperity Home Mortgage as a prime example.

Comprehensive Products

One of the most significant benefits a lender can offer is a broad range of loan products. Prosperity Home Mortgage provides a comprehensive array of options, from fixed-rate loans, adjustable-rate mortgages, FHA loans, and VA loans to jumbo loans, Non-QM loan products, and even DSCR (Debt-Service-Coverage-Ratio) loans geared towards our investor clients. Having such a selection ensures you can find a program fit for your unique financial situation – not just one you 'fit into'.

But what truly sets Prosperity Home Mortgage apart are its exclusive and proprietary programs, designed with our client's needs in mind. Let's delve into a few of these.*

Lock, Shop, & Home: This program lets you lock in your interest rate before you've found your dream home. It provides the security of knowing your rate won't go up while you're house hunting.

Buyer Advantage: By completing the application process before shopping for a home, you can get your loan decision upfront! This program offers a significant edge in competitive markets, positioning you almost as a cash buyer.

XLR8: This program is designed to speed up the closing process. Once your loan application is complete, and your home is under contract, XLR8 can get you to closing faster, giving you and the seller peace of mind.

Exceptional Service

Service quality is another essential factor. You want to ensure that your lender has knowledgeable professionals who can guide you through the process. With over 20 years of industry experience, Prosperity Home Mortgage prides itself on delivering elite client service. 

Trust and Reliability

In the complex world of home buying, having a lender you can trust is invaluable. The right lender offers more than just loans; they provide peace of mind. Prosperity Home Mortgage, with its decades-long track record of trust and reliability, is a lender you can count on.

As an affiliate of HomeServices of America and a trusted partner of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, Prosperity Home Mortgage is part of a network that is deeply ingrained in all aspects of home buying. This gives clients access to a vast wealth of knowledge and resources.

The Little Things

Finally, it's the little things that can make the difference between a good lender and a great one. Timely responses and clear communication, transparency around all loan costs, and tech that supports a seamless experience – these are the details that make your home-buying process smooth and stress-free.
