mature home buyer learns her offer has been selected by the seller

Hope for the Best, Prep for the Worst

You’re waiting to hear if your offer was selected. But depending on the market and home, sellers review 10 to 40 offers. While the process is generally focused on price, there are other factors sellers weigh. The highest bid can come with strings attached, potential snags, and more questions than answers. STRONG HOME MORTGAGE offers a substantial guarantee that eases seller concerns and presents your offer as rock solid to close in a timely fashion. We want you to land your dream home and have the process be enjoyable — BUT if we’re at fault for settlement delays, then we pay handsomely for the hassle.
