House Hunters might make it look easy, but buying a home is a big decision. There are many things that go into choosing the right home for your family- the perfect lot, floor plan and location (of course!). It’s so easy to get caught up in the tiny details, but often we spend too much time focusing on the house and not what buying a house really means financially.

When you signed what seemed like a million pages when you closed on your home, did you really read all of the fine print? Did you see the Amortization Schedule and pretend you hadn’t (that big number at the bottom of the page can really be scary). The truth is, financing your home might not be as fun as searching for the perfect house, but it is just as important. That is where Movement Mortgage can help!

Movement Mortgage was created in 2008, right in the middle of our country’s financial crisis. Instead of giving people loans for homes that they couldn’t afford, Movement Mortgage decided to take a different approach. They were (and still are) committed to being a Movement of Change in the mortgage industry, corporate cultures and communities. At a time when many homeowners felt like just another number, Movement Mortgage made it their mission to love and value people. That purpose drives each and every transaction.

And their mission has obviously worked. With over 4,000 employees nationally and 26 here in the Midlands, Movement Mortgage has become a leader in the industry. Lexington Branch Manager Joel Wall said that the ultimate goal was to originate one out of every 10 mortgages in the United States. “Currently we have the #1 market share for purchase mortgage originations in South Carolina and want to keep it. We originate more purchase transactions in South Carolina than any other lender.”

Movement Mortgage stands out not only because of their love and value for people, but also because they strive to make the process of buying a home simple and enjoyable. Their speed and accuracy sets them apart from others in the mortgage industry. They offer a six-hour underwriting turn time, seven business-day processing and one-day closing, making them faster than any other lender in the nation.

Wall understands the impact that buying a house can have on a person’s life and he is committed to the company’s mission. “Working from the heart with honesty and integrity will always pay off when handling the single biggest transaction of a customer’s life.”
