Life on the Farm - Some changes are a'coming!

Not to long ago I mentioned we were working on something at my 9-5 that is tied into this blog. I am sure that left many of you scratching your head.....

Today I got the thumbs up and it's a go. While we have a few hurdles and formalities to get past - they are minor.

If you have been a fan of Rural Living for a while it's no secret that we love our little hobby farm! Like most of you coming h

ome to a house on acreage whether it is a few like ours or many hundreds, there is something magical about it. Endless wildlife and the things that you discover, uncover or stumble upon can be frightful but often just become humorous memories. For us it's a never ending discovery of amazing things with the ability to just walk out back to sit and listen to nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Living rural....has it's advantages and disadvantages of course as we've discussed many times....but none can be worse than if you want to purchase a home in rural America and can only use a mortgage lender remotely. In our case the closest is 30+ miles away and most of the time people never meet their mortgage consultant doing everything over the phone and fax machine. If there is a problem and if you are lucky you'll find a good one who is willing to fight through all the hurdles to get you to the end, where you walk out of a title company with keys in your hands to your own place.

Until now....in our little community. On December 10th I was given the go-ahead to "open" a mortgage office in our branch in our small town, a transition (from banker to mortgage) that is exciting and quite scary! So now....I can help others....purchase their little Rural Living hobby farm....
