I was listening to the song, Home, on the car radio today. I was driving home from meeting some borrowers who wanted to be preapproved for a mortgage. The situation is complicated. I had met them once before and now at the second meeting I uncovered more pieces to the puzzle.
They might have to lower their expectations on the home they can afford and make a few other sacrifices but I will make it work and they will be approved for a loan and they will buy a home. At the first meeting they were nervous but even though I had to give them some cold, hard facts today, they were calm. They were willing to make changes so they would get approved.
Sometimes it's just about finding the right pieces to the puzzle and gathering all the info and facts to make it work. And having borrowers who listen and learn is a bonus!
The song lyrics seemed apropos after my meeting today. "Settle down it'll all be clear, don't pay no mind to the demons they fill you with fear, the trouble it might get you down, if you get lost you can always be found, just know you're not alone, cuz I'm gonna make this place your home".
