  • We are open.
  • We are taking loan applications.
    • Purchase & Refinance: if you haven’t considered this before, now may be a great time to refinance your mortgage for a lower rate.
  • We are working both onsite and remotely.

Moving Forward

The spring market is here, and fortunately, the sunshine has come along with it! There are great success stories on the real estate side, with agents having moved effectively to utilize new technologies as well as new strategies to safely show and sell properties in the course of the last couple of weeks.

With that in mind, here are some things to look out for in the spring:

  • Spring markets are expected to open with great momentum as we return from pause.
  • Phased re-openings will bring a combination of tools, technology, and safe practices to serve buyers and sellers in conjunction with Governor Cuomo’s mandates.
  • Real estate has already incorporated many of these strategies.

Hot Market – Be Ready!

With phased openings and the spring market, the race to homeownership is on. How can you be ready? Get pre-approved!

  • Contact your mortgage consultant to be pre-approved today.
    • Why? With low interest rates and fewer homes on the market, there will be greater competition to buy houses.
  • Benefits of getting pre-approved:
    • View homes with confidence.
    • Sellers know you’re a serious buyer when they consider your offer.
    • Avoid being surprised by knowing what’s expected upfront, from dollars to documentation.
    • Reduce the stress that comes with a competitive hot market by being prepared for it.
    • On average, buyers that are pre-approved close 10 days faster.


  • We are closing loans every day.
  • Call us today.

Each family has individual circumstances, so please contact your Mortgage Consultant or Loan Coordinator with any questions.
