Local Texas Mortgage Lenders Are Better!

The Wall Street Journal has previously featured an article stressing that buyers in a competitive market, like those in Texas, need a local mortgage lender with a stellar reputation, the ability to close quickly, great communication skills, and local appraisers.

JVM Lending is a local mortgage lender, covering all of Texas, who checks all those boxes and then some.

Big bank rates with local mortgage lender service

It’s not uncommon for people to immediately associate “mortgage lender” with the big banks (Chase, Wells Fargo, etc.). Just because these bigger corporations come to mind the fastest doesn’t necessarily mean they’re the best fit for you and your housing needs.

Big banking corporations are just that: they’re big. Large corporations tend to have huge amounts of clientele. As a result, they lack the finesse to turn on a dime when it comes to managing your loan application. In a hot market like Texas, every day, hour, and minute counts towards getting your offer accepted. Buyers need a mortgage lender who moves efficiently and effectively.

Smaller and local Texas mortgage lenders (like JVM Lending) not only have the skill to close your loan in 14 days, we also have a better knowledge of the local real estate market. We even have our own in-house appraisal manager who is an expert on appraising home values in Texas.

The Wall Street Journal story says, “Buyers who need financing can strengthen their offers by working with a locally-based mortgage broker.”

In the same article, real estate agents are quoted saying that they even prefer to send buyers to a local mortgage lender who has a stellar reputation for getting deals done because it reassures them that not only will their clients be taken care of, but their deals are far more likely to close.

“Agents want to work with buyers whose (mortgage) lenders know the local market and have a record of getting deals done. That reassures the listing agent and the seller that a sale will close.”
