One of the biggest myths about homeownership is that you need a huge down payment to purchase a home. What if I told you that you can purchase a home for as little as 3% down?

Did you know your down payment could only be a few months’ rent?! Be your own landlord. Give us a call today!

When lenders review your application, they like to see consistency in your finances. After applying for a loan, avoid any major purchases like new furniture, appliances, jewelry, vehicles or vacations.

Mark and his team were invaluable to my home-buying experience. There were a few occasions where I was less than pleased (more related to the numbers than their service), and Mark and Mike were quick to help explain and answer any questions I had. They were genuinely kind and more than willing to take the time to ensure I was satisfied. The team at Advantage Mortgage works hard, and it shows through the wonderful customer service they provide. I am so incredibly grateful to have had their assistance in going through the home-buying process. I know it would not have been the same without them. Therefore, I would highly recommend this group! Thank you, Team Aalto!

Mark and his team are exceptional at what they do. They are all highly professional, friendly and helpful along the way. They handled a last minute confusion with grace and helped us still close on time. We truly appreciate their help and hard work.

I had an incredible experience with Mark and his team. After being pre approved and placing an offer on a house, I was told two weeks before closing by another lender that I didn’t qualify after all. I was referred to Mark and his team and they had my loan approved within 13 days and nearly closed the same day as originally expected. One day later is still VERY impressive. I highly recommend Mark and his team, they are the best!
