Mortgage Myth Busters Members


Have a mortgage question and keep getting conflicting answers and or information?  I get Trulia alerts for my state and about 70% of the time, there are both loan officers and or realtors answering mortgage questions that have misleading or completely wrong answers. It's not to say that any of us are perfect and or know it all... but I can say one thing, if I am not 100% sure, I seek the answer through the proper channels. Those channels would be my underwriters or the guidelines/manuals for such programs and or mortgage questions. With the mortgage industry changing more than ever before, one really needs to stay on top of this information.
