Jake Taylor Home Loans
Jake makes his home in Arizona with four beautiful children and his wife. A graduate of ASU, he’s also a US Army Veteran. He has been a mortgage broker since 2001 and has handled close to 1,500 loans for his clients. The average amount he handles is approximately $12 million per year; therefore, throughout his career he has helped borrowers gain access to over $200 million in loans thus far.
At Pilot Mortgage, they handle a wide range of loans for their clients. These include reverse mortgages for seniors, FHA loans, USDA loans for those buying in rural areas, and VA loans. They also meet the needs of those seeking conventional loans as well as those looking for loans that are larger than the average amount.
Pilot Mortgage also performs loan services for self-employed individuals as well as bank statement loans, or stated income loans, for people buying investment properties. Lastly, they also handle commercial loans, though this is not the core of their business. They do everything, really. If there’s a property with a commercial use or a residential use, they will work towards an effective loan for that property.
How To Pay Off Your Mortgage 4-12 Years Sooner: And Save Tens And Thousands In Interest
Once I’ve helped someone finance the purchase of a home (or a refinance of their existing property), it’s my goal to then help that person start paying off their mortgage faster and easier than they ever thought possible.
When people buy real estate, they don't realize that when they choose a bank to finance them, they’re also choosing a business partner. My job is to help clients to choose the right partner to meet their needs.
Mortgages are similar to taxes, and no one likes paying taxes. No one wants to take out a mortgage. However, just as many people want to drive on smooth public roads and put their kids in top-notch school districts, people who want to own property often must partner with a bank borrow enough money to purchase the property they want.
When most folks first set out to buy a home, they rarely have the money available to pay 100% cash up front. They need a mortgage, with the end goal of owning the property free and clear “someday” in the future.
Banks are business partners to homeowners. As a mortgage professional, I act as an advocate for buyers looking to finance real estate through these bank partners.
In addition to serving as an advocate to help my clients choose the right bank partners, I also help them clearly understand how mortgages work. In fact, the whole goal of this book is to educate people on how to pay off their mortgage sooner, so you can experience financial freedom that much quicker.
