The Role of Underwriting
October 13, 2011
Owning your own home has been part of the "American Dream" for years. The pride of ownership and sense of “belonging somewhere” have been strong factors in motivating over 60% of all households to own their own homes.
Throughout the process of obtaining a home loan you may hear the term “underwriting” referenced. Home Ideas Episode: Underwriting sheds light on what this step provides in the home-buying process.
Your home may be the most valuable asset you own. It can serve as a reflection of your financial stability and it can even be a source of collateral for other borrowing. The underwriting process creates a foundation for your financial capabilities and by assessing what you can afford, it makes for a comfortable home owning experience for you and your family.
