"As a seasoned mortgage professional I believe that advance preparation is the key to ease and simplification of the loan process"
Yes, things have changed – since the downfall of the mortgage industry lending has become much more stringent. The "easy to qualify" mortgage loans no longer exist and underwriting guidelines have tightened up however this is often exaggerated by the media. The reality is that many of the guidelines that have existed for decades are simply being adhered to more diligently and the basic things like income, credit and down payment matter once again, especially with the roll out of the Qualified Mortgage.
