It was the beginning of July 4th weekend when I received a call from someone who was referred to me by a local real estate agent.

The person calling was relocating from Michigan to Central Illinois to start a new position for a local employer. She wanted to purchase a house by the end of July, but her mortgage lender was unresponsive.

I shared with her how INB could help with her quick timeline for closing. She was thankful but initially wanted to give her lender another chance. Less than two weeks later, though, she called again because her lender had failed her.

I ran her credit on July 15 and got the ball rolling. The customer knew we couldn’t make her original end-of-month deadline at that point, but she was relieved that we were able to start the process so fast.

On August 2, we got final approval for her mortgage loan and were ready to close… only 18 days!

We’re Ready When You Are

At INB, we know people are counting on us when making one of the biggest purchases of their lives. We’re always researching and trying new ways to approve financials and close loans more quickly. Why? So you can get into your new home as fast as possible.

A significant reason we can process and approve loans so quickly happens behind the scenes with our Mortgage Operations department. They are dedicated to streamlining each part of the mortgage process, so our customers don’t have to wait long to get the keys to their new home.

Collaboration is Key

When I first started at INB in late 2020, it didn’t take me long to be sold on the teamwork and collaboration. Every INB employee I talked to raved about the company culture.

The attitude throughout the mortgage department is collaborative: people want to help you, share answers and information, and point you in the right direction. The Mortgage Operations staff make the whole team look good – all so we have happy customers.

Getting to the closing table is exciting. At INB Mortgage, we move quickly so you can move quickly… just like my recent customer who was able to get her final approval and ready to close on her new home in 18 days.

If you’re considering buying a home this year, our INB Mortgage team is ready to sit down with you and talk through all of your options.
