As a rule, banks aren’t known for making life easier. But one mortgage company is working to reverse that image. HomeLand Lending, which serves customers in Ohio, West Virginia, Michigan, Indiana and Pennsylvania, has focused on removing the barriers that often keep homebuyers from building on their own home sites. And now, with some super-low interest rates and new innovative loan programs, HomeLand Lending is showing just how helpful a mortgage company can be.
“In the past, lenders — especially big ones — have struggled to help people who wanted to build on their own land,” says HomeLand mortgage specialist Tim Davison. “But we’re not only experts in this kind of lending, we’ve put a huge amount of effort into simplifying the entire process.”
It helps that HomeLand Lending works exclusively with Wayne Homes, which pioneered on-your-site homebuilding and created an award-winning approach to customer service. “Our process works hand-in-glove with Wayne Homes,” Davison says. “The typical gaps between builders and mortgage companies — they just don’t exist between us and Wayne Homes. That makes everything much simpler for buyers.”
HomeLand Lending has also worked to reduce the expense and risk of homebuilding. In addition to its highly competitive interest rates, HomeLand offers a number of very practical innovations such as job loss protection, one-step closing and special programs for buyers who can’t afford a 20% down payment.
“Obviously, interest rates are very important,” explains George Burgardt, another of HomeLand’s mortgage specialists. “But we’re trying to help homebuyers on so many other levels as well.”
That’s a refreshing attitude for a mortgage company.
