Premier Nationwide Lending Protects Home Buyers From Rising Interest Rates

08/26/2013

Premier Nationwide Lending introduces a new program designed to allow home buyers to lock in an interest rate while shopping for a home.

Flower Mound, TX – Premier Nationwide Lending (PNL) is proud to roll out the “Lock and Shop” program through its retail origination channel.

“There is no question mortgage rates are increasing,” said Corey Kirkpatrick, Divisional VP - Production of Premier Nationwide Lending. “With the ‘Lock and Shop’ program, we will credit approve a home buyer and lock in their interest rate before they find the property they want to call ‘Home.’ We created this program with the consumer in mind. The home buying process is stressful. However, we don’t feel it should be. Let us take the stress away.”

With the “Lock and Shop” program from PNL, if rates go up, the borrower is protected. If mortgage rates decrease, the home buyer will have an option to “float down” to the lower rates.

Shane Campbell, National Sales Manager, is excited about this new program for home buyers and the positive impact it will have on the company’s growth. “Our licensed mortgage professionals are thrilled to offer this program to their clients. The threat of increasing interest rates stripping away a borrower’s loan approval is removed from the equation. This means less fallout and a greater opportunity to deliver excellent service to our borrowers and referral partners. In addition, loan professionals want to work for a company that offers these types of innovative programs. Prospective employees are drawn to the ability to offer the ‘Lock and Shop’ program.”

PNL will showcase the “Lock and Shop” program at the Texas Association of REALTORS Convention in September. “Our REALTOR partners want to work with a mortgage company that will fully credit approve a home buyer and lock in their interest rate before they begin touring homes. This makes for a much smoother process for real estate professionals as well,” Campbell added.

Premier Nationwide Lending is a privately owned Texas mortgage lender. 80% of the residential mortgage loans funded by Premier are for purchases. As a division of NTFN, INC., PNL operates retail, wholesale and correspondent origination channels. Sponsor NTFN Inc., NMLS #75333

Testimonials

After dealing with a shady mortgage lender who cost us one home deal and almost cost us the one we ended up buying. I got in touch with Scott Voelkel and he managed to get the deal done in a unique situation. Thanks Scott, we will be sending everyone we know to you.

I am a real estate agent and I've been working with Scott Voelkel since 2002. We have made a very successful partnership with Scott as a lender to my clients. When I have needed Scott to expedite a loan because my clients have had specific needs, Scott has always delivered! Even when we have had challenges, Scott has risen to the occasion and helped in every capacity that I have ever needed. We have done some home buyer seminars together, and would welcome the opportunity to do more! Scott's ability to find creative financing and help with grant programs is second-to-none compared to other lenders with whom I have worked. I highly recommend this hard-working, top-notch professional, and I am not only honored to call him a colleague, but I am thankful to call him "friend".
