Reputable mortgage companies
Reputable mortgage companies are plentiful
out there. However, there are also plenty of
non-reputable mortgage companies out there as well. When
you do find a good mortgage company to work with, pass
on their name and contact information as the greatest
gift you can ever give back to thank them for their
great service is plenty of referrals. Mortgage companies
that usually provide great service usually have much
smaller marketing budgets and can not afford to compete
with the large companies. To make sure your smaller
companies stay in business they rely on the referrals
from customers like yourself. In order to be able to
consistently earn referrals from customers they must
provide excellent service and be a very reputable
When looking for a reputable mortgage company, make sure to check out a
company's references. Talk to former clients, and see how they were treated.
Ask the company to provide a variety of references for you to call and see
what kind of experience they will state that they had working with them.
One of the best ways to find any potential challenges with a company is
to simply "Google" them. People will always post horror stories about
companies on the internet as a small way of getting revenge. Many
consumers either write blogs about bad service or bad experiences they have
had with a company. Many homeowners also file complaints on ripoffreport.com
about horror stories that they have had with various companies and their
One way to help you research as to whether a mortgage company is reputable or not would be to call the licensing entity for that mortgage company. Just about all of the states in the country have a central licensing agency that is responsible for maintaining, monitoring and renewing the licenses of mortgage professionals and mortgage companies. Ask them about the company you are considering doing business with and see if they have any information they can provide to help you with your decision.
Ask your mortgage representative for some references of recently closed loans. Ask as well if there are any real estate agents, attorneys, and other professionals that would give them a reference.
The Better Business Bureau is another great resource to check. There is a rating system that grades businesses. You can also view complaints against the company, and see how they handeled the situation.
Taking a little time to check out a company can save you lots of money! Check with the better business bureau, ripoffreport.com and a google search for mortgage fraud and see if you see them listed.
Always make sure the company you are dealing with is licensed in the state your property is located in
You can always look up a company on the Better Business Bureau to see if any complaints have been filed against that company.
Keep in mind that if a mortgage company offers you an interest rate that is too good to be true, it may be a bait and switch. Compare the loan product with and consult other companies. Other mortgage professionals can often identify bait and switch tactics.
On the internet, mortgage companies can be hard to differentiate.
The better business bureau is a good place to start, but keep in mind that the better business bureau is a "paid" organization. That means that a mortgage company can't join unless they pay dues every year. The only requirement to be a member of the better business bureau is to be up to date on your dues. The bbb does not check a company out before letting them join. They just make sure the check clears the bank.
We are one of the few branch companies that doesn't pad our sheets. Anyone care to test lending rate sheets???
Also another good way to check companies is to brush up on the laws and see when companies break them or when they are in the mortgage news with million dollar fines.
