Company’s newest loan officer says now is a great time to buy a home,
but it’s critical to plan ahead

April 6, 2021 –  DANVERS, MA – Mortgage Network, Inc., one of the largest independent mortgage lenders in the eastern U.S., announced that Mark Rowe has joined the company’s Burlington, Massachusetts branch as a loan officer. Rowe will be focused on meeting the home financing needs of residents throughout Massachusetts.

Rowe (NMLS #2063280) is a Melrose, Massachusetts native with strong ties throughout the surrounding community. He is a Melrose High School graduate and received a bachelor’s degree from Springfield College.

In today’s competitive housing market, Rowe said it is critical for potential homebuyers to plan ahead and get pre-approved as soon as possible.

“The best advice I can give borrowers is to make sure they are working with an individual and company that will take the time to find the best products and programs to suit their needs,” he said. “Many homes are generating multiple offers, so finding out what you can afford and having a pre-approval in hand when making an offer can put you ahead of the game.”

Meanwhile, current homeowners who haven’t refinanced their mortgages recently still have time to take advantage of low interest rates, Rowe added.

“While rates have increased over the past couple of months, they’re still historically low,” he said. “Homeowners who have equity built up in their home have a great opportunity to refinance at a more favorable rate and take out money to make home improvements, pay off debt, or even finance other expenses like college for their children.”

“We’re thrilled to have Mark join our office,” said Billy Pierce, manager of Mortgage Network’s Burlington branch. “He knows the local market well and understands all of our mortgage product offerings. He will be instrumental in assisting homeowners and buyers make the right decisions for all their financing needs.”

“It’s great to be part of the Mortgage Network team,” Rowe said. “The company’s culture and values align well with my own, so it’s a perfect fit. Mortgage Network staff are also passionate about giving back to the community, which is important to me. I’m proud to be here and I’m ready to help local residents with their mortgage financing goals.”
