* Remember, calling the company who is advertising the property can end up costing you thousands of dollars because they are focused on SELLING you a home. Most home buyers want to work with someone to help them BUY a home. Bookmark this page and call us when you are ready to start buying a home!

Mortgage Companies:*
Would you believe instant loan approval over the internet?:
www.iqualify.com
The nation's largest mortgage lender:
Countrywide Funding
Another national lender:
KeyStrokebank

* The most critical choice is to get a lender who is both able and motivated to get the job done! Once you have a number of lenders who are motivated and competent, then you can start looking closely at rates and fees. As full time buyer's agents we have leverage with lenders that you do not because you walk into a lender as an individual buyer.

Home Inspection Links*
Michigan's largest inspection company:
www.american-inspection.com
The standard-setting organization for home inspectors is The American Society of Home Inspectors of ASHI. Great lakes region:
www.ashi-glc.com
Another large inspection company:
www.newcomersinspection.com
A smaller local firm:
www.boardplace.com
 
*As luck would have it the inspection companies who have web sites tend to be more focused on the real estate agent's needs than the home buyer's needs. Our office rarely uses any of these companies for this reason. Some of these companies are not even ASHI members. The American Society of Home Inspectors is the standard setting organization for home inspection companies. If you want the best inspection for your needs, talk to a full time buyer's agent and get their recommendation.
