October is dedicated to raising awareness about many issues, including energy awareness and fire safety. Why do these issues matter to a mortgage lender? We know that a house is more than the materials it’s made of – it’s a home. We understand how important it is to maximize energy and protect your home from harms such as fire. This month, we’ll publish tips on home protection and share what others do around the country to promote awareness. Your local loan professionals will also have great tips for whatever helps you make your house a home – make sure to ask them!
