Getting you the BEST RATES POSSIBLE
Jim Wilson, Broker / Principal
Preferred Mortgage, Inc.
Lots of companies offer loans, and each company has different loan types. If you go to the bank and ask for a quote they will only show you their products, but not their competitors. The first loan types they show you are also likely to make them the most money. Working with a mortgage broker means you have someone who knows your financial situation, and shops around for the best offers from multiple lending companies. We know what criteria banks are looking for and how to help you qualify for the best possible loans. We only make money by finding you a good deal.

His extensive knowledge, diversity of loans, and personalized service make working with Jim a rewarding experience. Obtaining a loan with Jim’s help is also faster than going the direct lender route. He’s an expert at getting clients pre-approved quickly and closing the loan in an expedient manner.

We get asked lots of questions about mortgages, credit scores, and interest rates. Here’s some of the top mortgage broker questions that come up often for the San Francisco Bay Area. We hope you find them helpful.
Yes. Even if your current mortgage balance is more than your home is worth, you may still be able to refinance and lower your monthly payment.
We’ve helped thousands of homeowners get the home loan assistance they need. We can help you find a program that fits your particular situation and see if you qualify for a refinance, loan modification, or other home loan assistance program.
Refinancing has many benefits, depending on your financial goals. You can refinance to lower your rate, pay off your loan sooner, get cash out of your home to pay for a big purchase (i.e. education or home improvements), or switch from an Adjustable Rate to a Fixed Rate.
The closing costs when refinancing are often similar to when you purchased your home. These costs typically include lender fees and third party fees, such as for an appraisal and title insurance.
Yes, in most cases, you will need an appraisal.
Cash out refinancing is simply borrowing money from the equity in your home based on its value. For example, if your home is valued at $100,000 and your current mortgage balance is $50,000, you could take $20,000 cash out when you refinance, resulting in a new mortgage balance of $70,000.
Even if you have had credit problems, you may be able to refinance.
