Questions About Florida Mortgage Lenders?

Insight on mortgage lenders

(the voice of experience from a leading real estate agent in South Florida)


If you've been shopping around online for Florida mortgage information and have provided your contact info, you are probably getting bombarded with phone calls and emails. Be careful who you choose to provide you with financing for such an important transaction. 

You are wise to begin your planning with the financial side. Speaking with an experienced mortgage lender, you will determine your budget, your monthly and down payment options, and learn what documentation will be required to get your loan closed as quickly and painlessly as possible. 

As a licensed Florida real estate agent, I have seen firsthand what happens when buyers choose the wrong mortgage lender. It's tragic when closings are delayed or worse yet, cancelled, due to financing falling through, often at the end. 

Often the websites promoting the lowest mortgage interest rates are showing rates for borrowers with the highest income, lowest debt to income ratios, and highest credit score, for a single family home being used as a primary residence, with a large down payment. If that's you, great. If not, there are likely still loan options for you. Either way, you will benefit from an experienced mortgage broker who provides insight and offerings not available from the bulk lenders. 

In my experience, those lenders advertising their websites on TV are often mills that churn through many prospects. They often have inexperienced staff who may not be aware of how to best provide a mortgage on a Florida single family home, villa, townhouse, condo or second home that meets the needs of a particular buyer. 

I often recommend experienced mortgage professionals who know how to ask the right questions, learn all of the details they need, and who know how to package the loan, to provide the best mortgage at the best rate for the specific needs of the buyer. I'm fortunate to know some of the best real estate lenders in South Florida who specialize in: 
  • Luxury Home Loans (Jumbo Loans)
  • Physician Loans (Some loans are 100%)
  • Second Home Loans
  • Investment Property Loans
  • Renovation Loans
  • FHA Loans
  • Commercial Property Loans
  • Loans for Self-Employed 
  • Bridge Loans
If you're self-employed, own your own business, have complex finances, or if you're purchasing a second home, investment property, or commercial property, I highly recommend asking for a lender recommendation from me or another top real estate agent in South Florida. 

Here's a good article on banks vs non-bank sources for mortgage financing: More consumers turn to non-banks for their mortgage

Whether you're buying or selling, or just getting started, I welcome you to contact me for a no-obligation consultation.

A Dozen Reasons the Holidays Are a Good Time to Sell Homes in Florida!

If you're considering selling your home in South Florida, now is a great time!


Find Out Your Home's ValueInventory is low and demand is high. Home values are the highest in years in Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Highland Beach, Boynton Beach, and many surrounding communities in Palm Beach County and Broward County.


I'm here to help! Contact me for a detailed market analysis and no-obligation consultation.

  1. The Snowbirds are here now! Many have arrived with plans to buy condos, townhomes, and single family homes! I'm always working with Buyers this time of year, maybe the right one for your home. 
  2. People who look for a home during the Holidays are more serious buyers! (If you're a serious buyer, Contact Me! I'm here to help!)
  3. Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the Holidays and less competition means more money for you!
  4. Since the supply of listings will dramatically increase in January, there will be less demand for your particular home! Less demand means less money for you!
  5. Houses show better when decorated for the Holidays!
  6. Buyers are more emotional during the Holidays, so they are more likely to pay your price!
  7. Buyers have more time to look for a home during the Holidays than they do during a working week!
  8. Some people must buy before the end of the year for tax reasons! 
  9. January is traditionally the month for employees to begin new jobs. Since transferees cannot wait until Spring to buy, you must be on the market now to capture that market!
  10. You can still be on the market, but you have the option to restrict showings during the six or seven days during the Holidays!
  11. You can sell now for more money and we will provide for a delayed closing or extended occupancy until early next year!
  12. By selling now, you may have an opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer during the Spring, when many more houses are on the market for less money! This will allow you to sell high and buy low!
