Know before you go – Free Pre-Qualification

It’s a great idea to know how much of a home you can afford before starting the quest.  Call and speak to an experienced Mortgage Loan Officer to discuss your situation, get your questions answered and find out the price range you should be looking in.

Know before you Refi – Free Pre-Qualification

Refinancing your home is usually a very big decision, and rightfully so.  We have seen many home owners refinance their current mortgage with a new mortgage that was not optimal to their situation.  Product type, loan amount and term, among other variables are crucial when refinancing.  We at Mortgage Tech will evaluate your situation in depth to answer these questions and come up with the best solution for your individual needs.  Also, for New York properties, we are mortgage consolidation experts.  We will determine the savings by doing a mortgage consolidation and discuss if it makes sense or not.  In many cases you can save thousands of dollars by consolidating, however many MLO’s will not even mention it due to the increased paperwork and complexity.
