Yeah, it's here. Tomorrow, April 9th, 2013 is FREE CONE DAY at the Ben & Jerry's Store on Main Street in Huntington.  The wonderful Ben & Jerry's store, which is always a treat to go to, whether you are a kid, or a kid at heard, is located at 298 Main Street in Huntington, NY.  What flavor will you choose?  Will it be Chunky Monkey, Cookie Dough, Cherry Garcia, Late Night Snack, or do you have a different flavor you plan to choose?  My passion is Willie Nelson's Country Peach Cobbler, although I'm not sure they stock it in our local store in Huntington.  (If anyone from Ben & Jerry's is reading this, PLEASE bring Peach Cobbler to the Huntington Store soon.

Taking the mystery out of the mortgage process – part II In the last issue of More Than Mortgage, we reviewed the loan process from pre-approval to closing and what your customers should know at each step. With keys in hand, the process is completed for the homebuyer, but there are still a number of steps that take place behind the scenes after closing. Warehousing: About 10 days after closing, the lender uses their warehouse line to finance the new loan until it is "sold" to an investor on the secondary market. Secondary market: Allows lenders to sell mortgages to investors, providing them with new funds to offer home loans to new borrowers. Your customers' mortgage rates are influenced by the yields demanded by these investors. Typical investors of mortgage-backed securities in the se...

Taking the mystery out of the mortgage process – part I The home buying process can seem complicated and overwhelming for the average buyer. Helping your customers better understand the different phases in the mortgage loan process early on – and what is expected of them at each step – can help make the process less intimidating and reduce frustration.Phase 1 – Origination:This begins the mortgage process and is actually several steps. The loan officer will help the customer learn what their mortgage financing options are through a pre-qualification process, and assist with filling out a loan application and gathering the necessary documents.Customers should know: They'll need to provide income, asset and debt information, and their Social Security number to allow the lender to pull the...
