Thanks for your service to our country from one Veteran to another. Thanks for your post & congratulations on your decisions to purchase a home. The first part of home buying is getting APPROVED by a Lender who has done their due diligence as to your ability to repay the loan and not cause you financial harm. We here at The Federal Savings Bank would like to introduce you to our H.E.LP.P Home Loan Purchase Program where we underwrite and approve your credit income and assets without a specific property. We will then issue a letter of commitment to lend based on the selected property meeting the underwriting guidelines. This letter lets sellers and Agents know you are serious qualified buyer and they will be more enthusiastic to work with you.

Buyers have the luxury of getting their Real Estate broker for No Charge.....

The only request we have as brokers is: In order for me to put forth the time it takes to
provide the necessary level of service, I ask for your loyalty in return. Fair enough?

Thank You
