One unique aspect of serving families and individuals for 40 years in Greater Cleveland is that we are grounded in the community. As a Charted NeighborWorks® America member – we are big on collaboration with our partners in the community. We also recognize that we need a back and forth dialogue with the financial institutions in our community. Capital is critical for those looking to achieve, preserve, and sustain homeownership. We want to ensure our clients get the best products to fit their needs.
On Tuesday, we held our third Lending Advisory Committee Meeting to discuss trends in lending, real estate, NHS programs, and policies.
What makes this unique? It’s a forum, really. Our community lending partners tell us what they are seeing and vice versa.
We also benefited from NHS Board Member and Akron Cleveland Association of REALTORS Director Mike Valerino providing an update on real estate trends, public policies relating, and some big changes coming August 1 during the homebuying process.
A big thank you to the Committee that drives this conversation. Our friends and long-time partners that joined us yesterday included:
Fifth Third Bank
First Federal of Lakewood
Third Federal Savings and Loan
So here is a question…what do you want to know about lending and mortgages in our community?
