5 Crucial Reasons for an “Annual Loan Review”

Just like an annual physical, it’s important to do an “Annual Loan Review.” Your loan may be your biggest debt, so it’s critical to keep up-to-date on the answers to these five crucial questions:
1. What can you do now to stop paying mortgage insurance and save $200/mo.?
2. What is your current credit score and what can you do now to improve it so you can lower your house payment?
3. What can you do now to lower your interest rate and lower your house payment?
4. What can you do now to shorten your loan term so to become debt-free faster?
5. What can you do now to take out some equity from your home and use it to improve your personal wealth?
The next time you are in a conversation with a friend, family member or neighbor who is talking about their home loan, remember the future belongs to those who prepare, and I am prepared to help you and the people you care about. Call or text and we’ll start right away. Together we’ll make the future better than ever!

Do You Love Your Home?

Happy Valentine’s Day is right around the corner!
We associate Valentine’s Day with romantic love, but it’s also a time to reflect on love and gratitude for our homes, which nourish our most important relationships. Home is where loved ones build traditions founded on fun, love, joy and family unity.
For me, as a trusted real estate consultant, there is no better feeling than handing a friend the keys to their new home. I could experience that feeling again and again.
It is my strongest wish that your home continues to be a place where your friends and family thrive. Yet, over the course of time, things change, and a home can become just a house. People move in, people move out, the shape and size of families and things change.
When you notice that someone is no longer in love with their house, please let them know they have options. Take out your cell phone, look up my number and call me immediately, and together we’ll make sure they 1) have access to world-class remodeling professionals to help them fall in love with their house again, or 2) work with me to find a new house that feels like home again.
