Just Approved: Two prong purchase strategy pays off

Fri, 14 Jul 2017 20:16:25 UT

Two prong purchase strategy pays off Mortgage broker: Single-family home in Marin County. Jumbo 15-year fixed. Backstory: A couple wanted to buy their new primary residence. [...] they did not want to sell their current home until they owned their new home. Fortunately, they were well qualified to be able to carry the debt obligations for both properties simultaneously. In order to compete with multiple offers, they made an offer without any contingencies to enable a quick close. Bayer approached the current mortgage with a great rate and confirmed the borrowers would later be able to “recast” their loan, for a nominal fee, to reamortize to a lower payment after they paid down the principal. Bayer’s clients were thrilled to get the rate and to close in 18 days, even with a federal holiday weekend in the middle of the transaction.
