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

William did a wonderful and thorough job with our refinance. He went out of his way to accommodate our busy schedules and came to us to pick up all loan documents. He even went as far as setting an appointment for a person to come to our house to go over everything with us at closing. William was exact with all documents and extremely knowledgeable about the refinance process. He answered all questions honesty and accurately and completed our refinance in a timely manner. He even continued to answered questions for us months after our refinance. My husband and I would highly recommend William to anyone in the market looking for a loan officer.

It was an absolute delight to get to work with William. I've had nightmare stories told to me by friends and coworkers but never encountered any problems with Will because he always kept me in the loop. Thanks for helping me get my condo!

We've used Mr. Branch on three mortgages. He was prompt, informative and kept us in the loop throughout the entire process. He is very professional, courteous and SMART. USE HIM!

Mark & Lorna K.

William was our Loan Officer for two mortgage refinances and closed out both deals in less than 4 weeks. In both cases he was able get my wife and I the best APR available and lock in without paying points. His business acumen is second to none in the industry. He was very resourceful wrangling our credit/debt situation and knew what calls to make and when to push the loan forward. His response time and communication skills are fantastic. He always responded to my emails and phone calls within the business day and I hardly ever found myself waiting on him, more often it was my delay in submitting documentation. I highly recommend William Branch!

Robert & Christi A.

William Branch was referred to us by our realtor. He was a very good choice for us. William was very knowledgeable about the loan process and answered all our questions and concerns as they popped up. No matter the time or day, he was there for us. He continued to go out of his way to gather and complete our application and any other information needed to get the process approved and get us into our new home. Thank you William.

William Branch worked with my wife Shelley and I do what we felt going in might be an impossible mission. William worked with us, was mindful of our needs and budget, and worked diligently, many times "after hours", some days it seemed his hours were 24, working on ways to make this deal work. It was not easy for him, nor us, but he managed to dig deeper and find solutions from applications, to credit, working with the VA requirements to even helping us find homeowner insurance. Ours was a challenging loan, but he made it happen for us and a dream come true.

William & Shelley A.

William Branch was very professional and reliable. I was worried at first about working with William since my first experience with purchasing a home was horrible but he proved me wrong. He was very quick to return my calls/e-mails and answered all my questions. I would definitely recommend my friends and family to William Branch.

Rosie & Alex M.

William was an answer to prayer.. We quickly found out purchasing an AG property was not an easy task.... until we found William who had no problem! He found us a better interest rate than any bank could give us and we checked online as well but found all kinds of hidden fees! William stepped up and gave us his knowledge and helpfulness to make the loan part of buying a house painless! He kept us up to date on what was going on and took a great interest in making sure everything was perfect for us and when we hit a problem he was quick to let us know and had a solution to make it work out. He has stayed in touch with us and was there for us at the closing table to make sure everything was perfect! My husband and I would recommend William to anyone and know they will get same great care and commitment we received! Keep up the great work William and look forward to working with you on our next deal!

Mark & Leigh W.

William was very professional in all his dealings with us during our refinancing. We have been through this process several times but this was by far the smoothest and easiest ever. William was in touch with me or my husband almost daily by email or phone to give us updates. There was a slight hiccup (we were surprised by the value of our house), but he worked through this with us very professionally and thoroughly so we could still get the benefit of a great new rate and some cash to help with some updates.
