Prequalifying For Home Mortgage

In order to bid on a home you must be prequalified for a loan. Most banks will do this for you in a short visit. Some will let you prequalify on-line. Easthampton Savings Bank won't prequalify you at all. They make you go through the entire process of setting up an actual loan which is only good for a short while and may not be what you actually need once a purchase and sale agreement is in place. There interest rates were a bit higher also when I looked into this. I might add that my husband and I have our savings and checking at ESB and have done business with them for years. They have good free checking and even pay you to use your debit card, but if you are looking to be prequalified for a home mortgage, look elsewhere!

Mortgage Lending

Fall 2011, I am buying a home in East Hampton, they had one of the lowest mortgage rates around this summer, so I chose to go with them. Big mistake. They have actually calculated WRONG NUMBERS a few times during the two properties I have worked with them on (the first one ended up falling through). Communication is bad. They have waited until the last minute to tell me some of the things I need to get to them. Then the clincher is that they ended up not finishing on time, so they couldn't give me the mortgage approval by the date on my P&S!! The sellers have started getting nervous, even though I have a credit score in the 800's, and have a ton of down payment money! I should have been the easiest case to process. I have done a mortgage, and also refinancing before and I have NEVER encountered such incompetence. Finally, my real estate agent contacted them and complained. Things are at least moving along now. However, I have emailed and called the new contact person at the bank (a bit higher up in the ranks I am told) and she has not even gotten back to me!!! At a minimum, I am owed an "I'm sorry" for the inconvenience! I am SO unhappy with my interaction with this bank, I will NEVER recommend them ever to anyone.
