Choose a Mortgage Company with a Great Company Culture
Senior Loan Consultant Jay Glover with New American Funding joins the Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio podcast to talk niche loan products, mortgages and home loan advice. Glover joins host Carol Morgan on the All About Real Estate segment. Glover stressed that consumers should choose a mortgage company with a great corporate culture, like New American Funding
A member of the mortgage industry since 1997, Glover started his career with HomeBank Mortgage. He transitioned from his position there to the wholesale side and since 2005, has focused his attention on the retail side, specializing in purchase-money mortgages.
New American Funding is one of the nation’s top mortgage service providers and is a direct lender for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. A top-rated organization, the company is focused on purchase-money mortgages and helping consumers realize the dream of homeownership. Glover joined the New American Funding team last August.
Glover said, “New American Funding has really opened my eyes. Their focus is on reminding the employees what we do as a company and how important it is.”
Glover remarked that his favorite part of working for New American Funding is engaging with the vibrant company culture. In a team-led venture, everyone on the company roster works seamlessly together to transform a consumer’s dream into a reality.
In a market that is slowly returning to normal, the Buydown Loan allows homebuyers to buy the loan rate down in the first year. This phenomenal product enables consumers to purchase a home, budget and acclimate to homeowning before the rate returns to a normal figure.
Glover said, “Consumers think a rate in the mid-fives may be a high rate, but historically speaking, anything below six percent is good. It’s hard to talk about that when rates have been so historically low for so long.”
A massive fan of adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs), Glover remarked that this niche product is ideal for the current market conditions. The average homeowner stays in their home for five to six years, making a 30-year loan look unattractive to many buyers.
ARMs are amortized over 30 years, looking and appearing like a traditional loan, but are offered at a lower term. Glover is well-accustomed to selling and offering ARMs and remarked on their re-emergence in the current market.
Assigned to borrowed sums adding up to $647,000 or above, jumbo loans or jumbo financing follow guidelines determined by investors in place of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. Typically more restrictive, jumbo loans follow similar guidelines to Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae but have stricter guidelines regarding income, reserves, larger down payments, etc.
