I'm not sure what the Lending Center is exactly but i would say your best bet is to speak with a mortgage consultant in person in the area you are looking to purchase a home. There are a couple of different things you can look into. There are mortgage brokers and mortgage bankers. Bankers hold their own loans, example Wells Fargo, Bank of America, etc. Brokers have access to many different bankers to better 'shop' your loan for the best interest rate. I am a mortgage consultant as well as a loan officer. Please let me know if you have any other questions that i might be able to assist you with.
Have a great day! Best of Luck!
One of the things I like to tell my clients who are looking for a loan is compare apples to apples. This is really hard to do if you have bought only a few homes in your lifetime. Lending like any business is a for profit endeavor. When looking at a The Lending Center you want to know the parent company (First NLC Financial Services, LLCÂ®.) Because this company specializes in subprime loans you want to make sure that it will be solvent at time of closing.
Best to talk to a Realtor and ask who they prefer to use, or look for a local Mortgage Broker with a good reputation in the community.
That's my Opinion.
Here is my Short List of Loan officers BLOGS who are Rated very Good. In no particular order
What's the lending center? Is that one of the national sites that says it will shop your loan for you? If so I would suggest you talk to friends and family who have purchased a home recently and get referrals to two or three local loan officers or brokers. It is always easier to work with people you can meet face to face and who know your local and state guidelines.
