Loan Originator, Jessica Bordner, with VanDyk Mortgage was not only informative but a great person to speak with about living in Florida. Being a true Floridian, Jessica was born in St Petersburg, but raised in a rural part of Pasco County. Now living in Pinellas County, she brings a great perspective of family life and “Salt Life.”
Her well rounded experience gives her a unique insight to qualify borrowers before issuing the “Preapproval Letter” which is required for 95% of all purchases today. “We have first time home buyer programs with Zero “0” down payment which hasn’t been around for a long time.” states Jessica. This is scheduled to launch sometime this month for those buyers who qualify. It’s a great step towards home ownership.
If you are just moving to Florida, Jessica recommends getting out and exploring all that Florida has to offer but “don’t forget the sunscreen.”
