If you haven't personally gone through the mortgage process recently be prepared to supply more documentation than ever before. In the last few years the documentation requirements for a new loan have changed significantly, which means you'll need to supply more documentation then you may think to receive your new mortgage.


Get Yourself Prepared to Make an Offer

"The Southie ones were a bust. One unit had multiple offers before we could even get in and there was a line for the open house."

~ South Boston Home Buyer

It may not feel like it, but Spring is here. At least the Spring Home Buying Market is here and is hot throughout Greater Boston. A common compliant most home buyers have is the lack of inventory. There are reports of lines out the door at open houses with many listings going under agreement after the first open house with multiple offers. If you are not armed with a pre-approval letter before you start your home search, you could be scrambling to get your paperwork to your mortgage advisor over the weekend before final and best offers are due by Sunday night.

Do you have a college bound child? Why pay room or board or high city rents?

Boston is known for a lot of things and Higher Education ranks up at the top. With 58 total institutions of higher education inside 128 / 95 loop (excluding colleges and universities along the North Shore, South Shore and in suburbs to the west) metropolitan Boston enrolls about 250,000 students.

With so many students enrolled in the Boston area and rents on the rise many parents are taking advantage of a loan program that allows them to buy a one unit home for their college bound son or daughter.
