    Lender Services

    Lender Services

    What exactly does a lender do?

    A lender is an individual, a public or private group, or a financial institution that makes funds available to a person or business with the expectation that the funds will be repaid. Repayment includes the payment of any interest or fees.

    What is the difference between a Mortgage Lender and a Mortgage Servicer?

    A mortgage lender is a bank or financial company that lends money to borrowers to purchase a home. A mortgage servicer handles the payment processing and is the company that sends the monthly statements to the borrower. A mortgage lender or bank can be both the loan provider and the servicer of the mortgage.

    Title Work

    Title Work

    The Title Company is at the epicenter of the process and can make or break the deal for you. Some but not all of the tasks the Title Company is responsible for are:

    – Perform a 60-year title search
    – Attempt to resolve any title issues
    – Conduct closing
    – Act as the escrow agent
    – Prepare the deed
    – 1031 Exchanges
    – Checks taxes
    – Check HOA balances
    – Record the deed
    – Disburses all monies in accordance with the ALTA Settlement Statement (98% of the time, the file is recorded and disbursed within 24 hours of settlement. Title Companies are allowed 2 business days, but very few take that long).
    – Purchasing and selling a home is one of the biggest decisions a person makes in their lifetime. Choosing the right title, settlement, or escrow company can make all the difference. Ask me about my preferred title company.



    1. What is a relocation specialist?
    A relocation specialist is an expert who manages the details involved with relocating to a new area. These specialists work nationwide and worldwide, to make moving as painless as possible. A relocation specialist will help you through every step of the moving process, from selling your current home to closing on a new one.

    2. What services does a relocation specialist provide?
    The exact services a relocation specialist provides will depend on who you use, but there are some services that almost any relocation specialist will provide.

    The biggest tasks that a relocation expert will handle are selling your current home and helping you rent or buy a new one. They will handle the time-consuming paperwork involved with buying and selling the property and keep you up to date on the status.

    As a relocation expert I can also help with the logistics of traveling to your new location. This includes everything from helping you book travel to ensuring that you have the proper passport and visa, travel insurance, immunizations, and so on. If you have pets, they will help you figure out the best way to get there.

    If you have kids, I will help you enroll them in school. This can be particularly helpful if you’re moving late in the summer or during the middle of the school year.

    These services will also help you with grunt work that relates to your new home. If contractors are doing work on your new home before you arrive, your relocation service can be there to supervise.

    As, your specialist will also help with other tasks related to your move, like finding a moving company and services to pack and ship your things.

    Home Renovation

    Home Renovation

    Determine the Purpose of the Space
    In order to get the most out of your remodeling needs, your first step is to organize your thoughts and priorities to get the most out of the your ultimate remodeling dreams. Even though, you may be feeling the urge to do some custom home remodeling, you have to meet certain needs that aren’t being met at this time. What is the purpose of this space, and how do you envision meeting those goals? Are your lifestyle needs more of a traditional, formal or rustic look? Determining these points prior to diving into the home-remodeling stage of the project, will help guide you to make the right choices that suit your family, lifestyle and needs.

    Take Advantage of Natural Elements
    It’s no surprise that when it comes to home remodeling, most people look to save money and adding accessories and home décor to your home will certainly help enhance your personal imagination and style. Another tip we have for you is to consider how to budget your project with the use of accessories prior to starting your home remodel. By making a conceptual plan for where you will put accessories like curtains, rugs, pillows, and mirrors can help cut down costs later down the line. Also, plants, shrubs and bushes can help divide spaces in a way that makes sense and doesn’t cost much.

    Use Landscaping to Add Aesthetics, Texture and Structure
    Combining the inside and outside spaces of your home will not only add square footage to your home, but also a great deal of value. Backyard and garden spaces will always be a welcoming addition to your home. Planting trees and potted plants gives a pleasing appearance in consistency, as well as privacy. Lighting can also highlight any particular beautiful center point; unique pieces of furniture, or dividing curtain can incorporate the outdoor space into your everyday life.

    Buy A Few Nice Pieces of Furniture
    Since working with a tight budget may not allow you to buy expensive furniture, don’t be tempted to buy a lot of cheap furniture to fill the space instead. You don’t want things that will fall apart after a couple of months. Instead, work with the pieces you like in the space by revamping a sofa or a unique piece of furniture to accommodate your personality and lifestyle. Splurge on a few nicer pieces of furniture to complement and complete your custom look.
