Housing Resources, Incorporated (HRI) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping individuals and families purchase their own homes. Inlanta Mortgage is an organization dedicated to helping people realize the dream of home ownership.
On Tuesday, June 19, members of both organizations met to discuss the struggles many new home buyers are facing in South East Wisconsin with today’s economy and tighter lending environment. Executive Vice President Nicholas J. DelTorto welcomed HRI Executive Director Trena Bond and HRI Board Member Tammy Maddente (also of First Weber Group) to Inlanta’s Brookfield, Wis. headquarters for a working lunch to discuss how Inlanta can support the efforts of HRI as it helps potential homeowners with the challenges they face. lnlanta Mortgage affirmed its support of HRI’s initiatives with a $1,000 donation. Additionally the company will be available to participate in many of the first time homebuyer seminars sponsored by HRI in greater Milwaukee, Racine, and Waukesha.
“The challenges facing many first time homebuyers are tougher than ever since the mortgage market meltdown,” DelTorto said. “The underwriting guidelines and documentation requirements have become very strict with little to no flexibility, so it is more important than ever to have strong technical knowledge of the loan programs to serve the first time homebuyer. The loan officers at Inlanta are the best and most knowledgeable in the industry because mortgages are all they do every day.”
Inlanta and Bond look forward to further developing a relationship and finding new ways to help area residents realize the dream of home ownership. Inlanta Mortgage – Brookfield Manager, Adam Deputy was on hand to pledge his support and offer the assistance of his experienced team of mortgage loan professionals.
Bond and her team at HRI currently offer a number of services for homebuyers and homeowners including: post-purchase education and counseling, reverse mortgage counseling, a tool loan program, and down payment and closing cost grant assistance.
