WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Home Loan was started to help our customers achieve their goals, and we're proud of our track record. But don't take our word for it. Here's what some of our customers have to say:


"Working with Mario [Loan Originator] at Home Loan Investment Bank made the often rocky road of refinancing smooth and almost easy. Once we sent our information to Mario he reviewed it quickly, and promptly let us know if anything was missing. We were in Arizona, the property we were refinancing was in Maine, and Mario was in Rhode Island, but working with Mario was like working with a next door neighbor!"

– Dave M.


 "In this day and age, it is rare to find true kindness, consideration and courtesy. Emily [Loan Originator] was all of those things and more. I just wanted you, her manager, to know what a really excellent job she did for us. Thank you.

– D. Gayle & Robert W.


"This is just to thank you for all of your help. We finally closed on the houses! Please know that we are very thankful to you for helping us achieve a 'new' dream in America. My husband came to America 18 years ago with one dollar in his pocket and now he owns three houses... thanks to Home Loan Bank."

– Carolina B.


"Thanks to Kristin [Loan Originator] and your bank loan, this New Year is certainly looking brighter for me and my children. I know that I am one of the many thousands of people your bank deals with on a daily basis, but I never felt like a number or an account."

– Maggie C.


"I am writing to thank your for the opportunity for us to finally bring our previously high mortgage rate down. Due to financial difficulties over the past several years, until now we have been unable to do so. The opportunity your institution has made available for us is making all the difference in us securing our financial future."

– Karen T.


 "Thank you so much for all your help on our recent loan. Your professionalism, knowledge and great customer services made it all happen."

 – Frank and Eileen S.


"I closed on a home refinance with Home Loan Investment Bank in May. Mario [Loan Originator] made the process easy and painless. Mario and Home Loan were great to work with. It was just like your neighborhood bank on the phone and over email, and they were always available to move the process forward. This was truly a once in a lifetime refinance opportunity. I have the same monthly payment for a 15 year fixed mortgage versus my old 30 year fixed mortgage. Thank you. "

– Nils M.


"Thank you for superior professionalism and just plain human compassion throughout my refinancing process."

– Sonja S.


"I have been a Real Estate Broker for over 24 years, dealt with a lot of banks, bankers and brokers and I have never been treated so kindly."

– Evelyn B.


"Lance [Loan Originator] was extremely helpful, answered all of our questions promptly, whether asked by phone or fax, and his attention to detail and follow up were commendable. It may be a level of excellence that you expect from all of your agents, but we found it exceptional and worthy of comment."

– Harold S.


"We have told other people about the great way we were treated and about the smooth refinancing experience your company and Emily [Loan Originator] provided and have referred them all to you for help in refinancing their home."

–Gay and John B.

Mortgage rates edge up amid uncertain housing data

Posted on Monday, December 2, 2013 at 10:15:28 AM

Prior to the holiday season getting underway, homebuyers had plenty to be thankful for. Residential financing rates are still near historic lows, and better sales data indicated a stronger real estate market.

However, some figures were mixed, according to Freddie Mac. In its weekly Primary Mortgage Market Survey, this information - such as pending sales and price gains - was attributed to the slight uptick in mortgage rates.

For the week ending Nov. 27, the 30-year fixed-rate hit 4.29 percent, up from last week's 4.22 percent. In addition, the five-year Treasury-indexed hybrid adjustable-rate mortgage averaged 3.30 percent, up from 3.27 percent.

"Fixed mortgage rates retraced some of their decline of the prior week as housing data portrayed mixed signals," said Frank Nothaft, vice president and chief economist for Freddie Mac. "The National Association of Realtors reported that their pending sales metric dipped for the fifth consecutive month and was slightly below year-ago levels, presaging a softening in sales near yearend."

Moreover, the U.S. housing market received some good news. Buyers interested in affordable residential financing might have more real estate options soon, as new construction is on the rise.

According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, construction spending increased 0.8 percent during October month-over-month. This figure is also more than 5 percent higher than the same time last year, which means more homes are being made.
