Having Dane and Brad in Jacksonville has enabled us to establish a solid presence in a market that has seen tremendous growth.
Lawrenceville, GA (PRWEB) October 02, 2014
Positive market trends led BrandMortgage to expand its reach into Florida earlier this year with an office in Jacksonville. Mortgage bankers Dane Addison and Brad Koenig are leading the efforts in a thriving market offering an extensive menu of loan products and services that are often unseen in the industry.
With the resurgence of the housing industry, BrandMortgage has been following specific market trends in Florida. The Northeast Florida Association of Realtors’ recent market stats show an increase in pending sales (up 21% from this time last year), with the inventory of homes for sale decreasing and average sales prices increasing (at $217,870 - up 5% from last year). All very positive; it is a great time to buy a home or invest in property.
“We are thrilled that Florida is part of the BrandMortgage footprint. Jacksonville has a flourishing, fast-evolving real estate market,” says Alex Koutouzis, President and Managing Partner. “Having Dane and Brad in Jacksonville has enabled us to establish a solid presence in a market that has seen tremendous growth.”
BrandMortgage has extensive experience in the homebuilding market. Most impressively, the company has long-standing relationships with dozens of builders and realtors throughout the Southeast region. According to Metrostudy News, Jacksonville’s annual starts rate compared to last year increased by 14.7% to 5,376 annual starts. With the growth in home prices over the past year and the lowering of FHA loan lending limits, there are expectations that new home construction activity will continue to grow over the next few quarters, making it easier for first-time homebuyers to enter the market.
The BrandMortgage team and services in Jacksonville will enable homebuilders and homebuyers to utilize a long list of lending products available, including construction permanent, VA loans, doctor and dentist loans, extended rate locks, first-time homebuyer loans, self-employment loans, in-house niche and portfolio products, to name a few.
In addition, BrandMortgage has 23 additional branch locations throughout Alabama, the Carolinas, Georgia, Tennessee and Virginia. Homeowners and buyers in the Jacksonville metro area and beyond are encouraged to call (904) 473-0147 to set an appointment with a mortgage specialist or visit the BrandMortgage office at 10151 Deerwood Park Boulevard, Building 200, Suite 250, Jacksonville, FL 32256.
