Don’t Trust Your Rural Dream Home to a Person Behind a Screen Date: 1/30/2018 8:25:08 AM Author: Becky Kurschner Educational Opportunities: Articles Share: We’ve all seen TV ads and pop ups on our Facebook feeds for “fast and easy” online mortgages. Who wouldn’t want a speedy, no-hassle option for financing their home? And not having to talk to a high-pressure, commission based sales person? Even better! Some home buyers pursue a loan online and end up with aggravations, communications issues, delays and stresses they hadn’t bargained for - learning the hard way that looking for a home mortgage isn’t the time to cut corners. The situation gets even stickier for rural home buyers. Many mortgage lenders have a hard time financing rural properties with characteristics like tillable land, outbuildings or livestock facilities. Couple that with systems tailored for cookie-cutter mortgages and a large volume of nearly identical transactions and you’ve got a recipe for stress and frustration when trying to get a loan that doesn’t fit nicely inside their box. If owning a home in the country is your dream, working with a mortgage lender who specializes in rural properties like Compeer Financial is your best bet. We assign an experience team to specifically take care of your project so miscommunication, lost information and long delays are the exception, not the rule.
