“It’s Never Fun Telling Someone They Can’t Qualify”

“It’s Never Fun Telling Someone They Can’t Qualify”

 

 

 

I did a refinance for this couple and saved them nearly $1000 per month. They actually had two high interest rate mortgages and a few credit cards. I have relieved a lot of stress for them, but now they also wanted to purchase a lake house.

 

Unfortunately the math doesn’t work for them to accomplish the goal of buying the property that they wanted. I just am not willing to do what is not in the client’s best interest. Sure, they said they understood but I knew they were very disappointed:

 

Hi Joe,

 

Thank you for getting back to me on Friday. We also appreciate the help with the refinance of our Pomfret house and your honesty about the financing for the lake property. If there are any breakthroughs and you discover a lender whose criteria we meet please let us know.

 

We wish you and your family a great holiday season and please extend best wishes to your staff.

 

Warm Regards
