If you’ve recently considered purchasing a home, you know the current market is hot! Houses are frequently selling before they’re even listed, bids are competitive and negotiations have begun to hinge on pre-approvals, waiving inspections or cash-in-hand offers.

While the housing market isn’t expected to cool anytime soon, with the help of an experienced mortgage loan officer and Consumers Credit Union in your corner, the process of financing doesn’t have to be stressful or overwhelming. 

The Clary Family
Since getting married in August 2020, Kyle and Taylor Clary, and their one-year-old chocolate Labrador retriever Finn, were ready to find their first home where they could grow their family with a yard large enough for Finn and his fur-friends to play in.

The following September, the Clarys found their future home in Coldwater and were excited to make an offer. That’s when they met Consumers Mortgage Loan Officer Chuck Gower, NMLS# 1457683, who was ready to make the process as seamless as possible.

“Purchasing a home can be an intimidating and stressful experience, but it doesn’t have to be!” explained Chuck. “I love being able to put my experience to work for our members so they can enjoy what should be an exciting time in their lives.”

It was a noticeable detail that made a huge impact for the Clarys.

“We thoroughly enjoyed working with Chuck to finance our home!” beamed Kyle. “He made us feel great about the process, explained everything in detail and treated us and our situation with respect.”

The Consumers Difference
Kyle and Taylor quickly realized that working with Chuck and Consumers to finance their home was different than banking with other financial institutions.

“We have already recommended Consumers to others and would choose them again!” said Kyle. “They are truly here to help the people in our community and dedicate their time and energy to their members. We never felt like we were just a number, and that’s what sets Consumers apart.”

FastApp Mortgage
To help our members navigate the home financing process more easily, Consumers created FastApp Mortgage mobile app.

A simple and convenient experience, FastApp Mortgage app creates a space for the homebuyer, realtor and loan officer to easily communicate and directly upload documents and track loan status at any time – keeping everyone up-to-date during the entire process.

“We loved using FastApp Mortgage; it was very simple and quick!” said Kyle. “We were able to upload all documentation the same day we applied and were able to track the mortgage timeline throughout the entire process!”
