I was born and raised in the state of North Carolina. I am a 1988 graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and am such a fan of all things “Tarheel” that one of my sons even has Dean as a middle name. I am married with five wonderful sons whom I have coached in every conceivable sport through the years. My wife and I are active in our community and are constant presences at our son’s lives.
I have worked as a mortgage originator in the Carolinas for over 20 years. In that time I have developed a keen ability to determine the needs of each and every borrower. Listening is key, the hopes and dreams of every homeowner is different. I take my greatest satisfaction from assisting first time home owners achieve their goals. When problems arise I specialize in finding solutions and I have learned over time that my experience combined with a committed borrower is a winning combination.
Listening is key; the hopes and dreams of every homeowner is different.
Dan took the time to deliver the materials to our home. That was above and beyond. My husband and I work opposite schedules, and that helped us be able to sign everything very easily.
Dan was very straight forward and helped us through the process from helping us learn ways to increase our credit score to guiding us step by step through the process and keeping us informed at all times he was always available for any questions and always friendly
I have worked with Dan on at least 10 loans,he always gets it done!
We had a stressful time with the relators and Dan went above and beyond to help us get a hold of people to move forward with our closing date. He is very knowledgeable at what he does!
I have done several mortgages through the years. This was easily the best experience I have had. Dan was awesome
Mortgage Programs Explained
There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to mortgage lending. MiMutual has numerous loan options to fit every budget and situation. At MiMutual Mortgage, you can expect a one-on-one consultation to determine the right loan program for your unique situation.
A Conventional loan is a mortgage not guaranteed by the government. However, most conventional loans will follow the guidelines established by Fannie Mae (FNMA) and Freddie Mac (FHLMC). This type of loan is good for borrowers with a favorable credit score and allows more flexibility in loan terms and higher loan limits.
Unlike FHA, VA or RD loans, conventional loans do not require private mortgage insurance (PMI) unless the borrower has less than 20% down. 20% down however, is not a requirement and some conventional loans allow as little as 3% down! Once the loan reaches 20% equity, PMI can be canceled.
In addition to standard conventional loan programs, MiMutual Mortgage also offers the following niche conventional loan programs:
- Fannie Mae HomeReady
- Freddie Mac Home Possible
- Freddie Mac HomeOne
- Freddie Mac Refi Possible
Government loans are backed by the federal government. The loan is funded or originated by the mortgage company, but has a guarantee from either the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), USDA Rural Development (RD), or US Dept of Veterans Affairs (VA).
Government loans open the door for borrowers that have little to no money saved for a down payment, a challenging credit history or have lower credit scores. Government loans offer easier qualifying requirements and are widely used in the industry.
Government-insured loans can be used for purchase, renovation (through the FHA 203(k) loan), or refinance transactions.
Government loan programs include:
- Federal Housing Administration (FHA)
- USDA Rural Development (RD)
- Veterans Affairs (VA)
The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) sets a limit on the dollar amount a conventional loan must conform to. Any loans beyond this limit are known as a Jumbo loan. With a Jumbo Loan from MiMutual, you can expand your options and find your dream home that will meet your needs now and in the future.
MiMutual Mortgage offers a number of Jumbo Mortgage Programs to fit a variety of situations. These include Purchase loans, Asset-Qualifier, Rate and Term and Cash-Out Refinance loans.
- As little as 10% down
- Loan amounts up to $4 Million
- Primary residence, second homes, and investment properties are eligible
