Experts are forecasting an increase in home sales this year which is great news for sellers. Putting your house on the market can be intimidating but if you plan ahead and enlist the right help, the process can actually go smoothly. On today’s MoneyWise Live, hosts Rob West and Steve Moore share tricks of the trade when selling your home.
Buying a home is the largest, most nerve-wracking purchase most of us ever make. It doesn’t help when choosing a mortgage means entering a maze of unfamiliar words and confusing options that can leave us intimated, frustrated, and afraid we’ve been taken advantage of.
That’s why Navigating the Mortgage Maze is a crucial book for consumers, especially if they’re reeling from the current mortgage meltdown and need straightforward, easy-to-understand help from a trusted source. With 25 years of experience in the mortgage industry and a keen understanding of the average reader’s needs in getting a good mortgage, Dale Vermillion is perfectly positioned to be America’s ‘go-to’ expert. In addition to instantaneous help through Dale's website and an easy-to-use online mortgage calculator, the book features a clear and compelling presentation of the gospel. It’s one Dale has shared with tens of thousands of mortgage professionals throughout North America, and it will deeply impress the reader that the greatest purchase in history isn’t a good mortgage, but what Jesus Christ purchased for us on the Cross.
