United First Financial provides tips on working through the current market crunchMortgagePress.comUnited First Financial, UFirst Financial, Barry Habib, Sue Woodard, Mortgage Market Guide, Money Merge Account, Skyler Whitman In an ongoing effort to assist and educate mortgage brokers during the current liquidity crisis, United First Financial (UFirst Financial) announced the locations for their 10 city seminar tour. The companys seminars are designed to arm Mortgage Brokers with additional solutions to provide their borrowers during the current credit crunch. The free half-day events feature top industry speakers, including Barry Habib, CEO of Mortgage Market Guide and Sue Woodard, vice president of Mortgage Market Guide. In addition to providing brokers with sound advice and steps to close more loans during current market conditions, UFirst is also educating brokers about their dynamic Money Merge Account product, an online account system that incorporates a borrowers checking and savings accounts with an advanced line of credit. When following the program, borrowers have the ability to pay off their 30-year mortgage in as little as one-third of the time, without refinancing their existing mortgage or increasing their minimum monthly payments. Using this system allows borrowers to reduce the principal of their mortgage, ultimately eliminating thousands of dollars of interest from accruing, and provides more freedom to invest and grow finances over the long term. Our Money Merge Account works like a dream in a high or low rate market, said Skyler Whitman, co-founder of UFirst Financial. Its a great option for brokers and can help them to continue to grow during this challenging market. Brokers can earn extra revenue with existing business as it can work in combination with there current loan business. Its also another way to open doors with previous clients. The Money Merge Account was created with a variety of situations in mind, including repaying mortgages early, reducing monthly payments and consolidating debt, buying investment properties, funding home improvements and more. The program can be utilized by a range of borrowers, including first time home buyers, self employed individuals, older couples, retired professionals and those looking to gain freedom from a long-term mortgage. Our product also helps brokers brand themselves as partners to their clients, said Whitman. It helps clients view their brokers as partners who are helping them to improve their current and future financial situations. This gives brokers a clear advantage over their competition. The company kicked off the seminar tour in early September in Tampa, Fla. and then moved onto San Francisco, where they attracted nearly 200 brokers to their event. UFirst also believes its dynamic speakers at each event provide a great opportunity for the broker community to become even more educated about the current state of the industry. Our ultimate goal is to try and get the word out about what we are doing, said Whitman. We want brokers that sign on to utilize our product to understand it and be able to go out and explain it to borrowers as confidently as possible.
