Avoid Unsolicited Mortgage Offers

Have you ever wondered where all those bank offers and solicitations come from? I once made the mistake of responding to an online offer to refinance my mortgage and reduce your mortgage payment. Normally, I ignore them, but this one time it appeared to be legit. That one mistake resulted in phone calls and mailings that pestered us for weeks.

We are very careful who we recommend to our clients. Whether is it a mortgage company, an attorney, a home inspection company or any other service provider. The only people we recommend are people we use ourselves. Here is one good reason why. I just received this notice from Gail Alm, Certified Mortgage Planner, Fairway Independent Mortgage:

Its important to me that you are aware that Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation has a privacy policy in place that includes not sharing and/or selling any of our customer or prospective customer information. However, the simple act of pulling your credit can trigger unsolicited credit and mortgage offers from companies that purchase leads from the credit bureaus. The following information provided by the Federal Trade Commission can protect you from receiving unsolicited mortgage and credit offers.
