THE BIGGEST MISTAKE PEOPLE MAKE WITH MORTGAGES IS THEY SHOP FOR A RATE INSTEAD OF A BROKER!
I can say this from a professional standpoint because I SELL MONEY. More accurately, I SELL MONEY AND TIME, that is, I sell money for differing periods of time. My job title is that of a mortgage broker. It's not rocket science, but a lot of people would have you believe it's akin to it.
It's been said that intelligence is the ability to take something confusing and make it simple. I'm not a genius and I don't profess to know everything there is to know about real estate finance--nobody does. But, I can explain most of it simply enough so that anyone can understand it.

- There has been a tremendous growth in the different kinds of programs and new products within the past 15 years.
- A sizable number of people in the mortgage community are equally unaware of these programs and products and do not understand them well enough to explain their benefits and sell them.
- It's easier to charge more for a process that is little understood.
- Many of you are comfortable with your ignorance.
