Fulcrum Properties Group News and Updates

This blog is a guest post by Chris Geier, Mortgage Banker at McLean Mortgage Corporation.

Borrowers often ask what the difference is between an FHA and Conventional loan.  This is a great question, particularly from first time homebuyers.  In today’s marketplace, FHA loans are a very popular with first time homebuyers because of the low down payment requirement and comparatively low credit requirements.  FHA loans have also seen a rise in popularity since the mortgage crisis and the virtual elimination of subprime lending which, at the time, appealed to many first time homebuyers with few assets and imperfect credit.

As we start to settle in to 2016, we want to give one last shoutout to 2015, because it was an awesome year for our team and the wider #fulcrumfamily.

Washingtonian Magazine named Fulcrum Properties Group one of the best real estate teams in DC in the category of “Platinum Team,” which means we had a 2014 sales volume of over $40 million or more.

The magazine didn’t just base the award on sales numbers though. They surveyed 16,000 recent Washington homebuyers and asked them, “to rank their agents on a series of criteria, including integrity, market knowledge, and negotiation skills.” Then they called mortgage brokers, and other realtors and asked, “whom they most enjoy doing business with and whose clients always seem happiest.”

There’s nothing that makes us prouder than knowing we made our clients happy. Thank you!

We were named one of the best Platinum Teams in the region.
