Matthew Hansard

Senior Mortgage Banker

First of all, thank you for taking the time to visit my web portal. I have been originating home loans since I graduated from college in May of 2002. I attended Southwest Missouri State University now Missouri State University. While there I majored in Computer Information Systems but unfortunately graduated into the post 9/11 job market where no computer jobs existed. I had always considered myself a good salesman and did well in my finance classes at SMS, so home loans seem like something that would be a good fit. Since then I have closed approximately 600 home loans with the vast majority being those to first time home buyers. I suppose you could say that is my specialty, probably 8 of every 10 loans I close is for someone who has never owned a home before. I' m sure if you are like the rest of Americans all you here the media saying is there is no more money for first-time homebuyers that need 100% financing. Let me be the first to say this is a gross misstatement by the US media. There are still three big buyers of these types of loans Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and HUD. With credit scores above 620, there are at least sixteen different loan programs offered by Fannie and Freddie that you can qualify for. Below that HUD has no minimum credit score required for an FHA insured home loan. All of these programs can be used to buy a home with no money out of your pocket. If you are a first-time homebuyer and have any questions about how to get pre-approved for one of these products don't hesitate to give me a call.
