Purchasing a home in 2021 can be an adventure. As the COVID pandemic lowered interest rates and remote workers began exploring neighborhoods beyond their previous commute, the housing market began to heat up. In fact, since the pandemic’s onset, the median home price in the U.S. rose by 24%.
With a hot housing market, properties were in high demand and supply struggled to keep up with demand. This meant that prospective homebuyers found themselves in need of a lending partner who could provide results quickly without sacrificing customer service.
Fortunately, Stone Bank’s Home Loan department is no stranger to the mortgage lending world. Jason Hornsby, the head of our Home Loan team, has over twenty years of experience in helping home buyers navigate the lending process and reducing the amount of out-of-pocket costs associated.
His reliable, relatable, and “brutally honest” approach helps Stone Bank clients close on the homes of their dreams without breaking the bank. Here’s a message Jason (and fellow Stone Bank employee Cristina Del Toro) received from two recent homebuyers in North Arkansas who closed on their home a week early!
Jason and Cristina,
We just wanted to write you and say THANK YOU SO MUCH for how hard you guys worked on getting our loan processed in time. We really appreciate it and have bragged on you guys to several people! Our real estate agent also was very impressed and said she would send people your way for business. You both were so helpful, answered so many questions, and were easy to contact! Thank you so, so much!
ASHLEY AND ZACH B.
We were excited to help Ashley and Zach with their home loan process, and we’re ready to help you with yours!
