Mortgage Finance in Today’s Market
The mortgage loan process is complex and rarely without glitches. Important details can get overlooked causing a purchase to be delayed or denied. Understanding this process so that you better educate your clients can add value to your skill set as a broker. This fast-paced class will heighten your professionalism when presenting an offer to the listing agent – especially in a competitive market.

In this class you will:

  • Learn the lending process from the buyer and seller perspectives.
  • Recognize elements and aspects of a credit qualification.
  • Identify the “red flags” of buyer financing and different types of loans.
  • Learn the difference between pre-qualification, conditional loan approval, pre-approval and between the types of money lenders.
  • Increase knowledge on using specialized forms.
  • Discuss real life scenarios discussed from the seller and buyer side transactions.
  • Minimize transaction fall-out due to financing contingency(s).
