When I first thought about doing the Mortgage 101
I would talk myself out of making posts just because I felt like
everyone knows that. Now there has been multiple occasions that I have

The first page of the 1003
is the most intense because of the amount of information that is needed
. I always believe it better to give to much information than not

are going to have a fast and speedy closing.
Monthly income always seems to be a walk in the park for most people.
