There should never be any surprises in the process, documentation or pricing, before, during or after the closing. Communication is the key. Count on your Wintrust Mortgage Loan Officer to communicate where you are in the process, how long each step will take, what’s involved and what you can expect. If you don’t understand something, we’ll explain it. If you loan will be sold after closing, you’ll know it well before. When it comes to your home, there should be no surprises.
Wintrust Mortgage Loan Officers are experienced. They have seen real estate, credit and economic cycles come and go. They don’t chase trends or yell from the rooftops. They calmly, clearly and professionally review your needs and goals and suggest the finance options that make the most sense for you.
Some companies claim to have the lowest rates. Others promise to have the lowest (or no) closing costs or fees. The problem with both of these is that it is all tied together. There are costs associated with documentation and closing, just as there are costs with borrowing money. More often than not, if a company claims to be the lowest in one, they’ve raised the other to make up for it. This is a game we won’t play. We don’t post rates and don’t promise to have the lowest anything. We will promise that your rates and fees will be fair, competitive in the market and that you will understand each cost and how it was determined.
