Plante urges potential buyers to get pre-approved now

March 12, 2019 – DANVERS, MA –  Mortgage Network, Inc., one of the largest independent mortgage lenders in the eastern U.S., announced Spencer Plante has been promoted to loan officer at the company’s Freeport, Maine branch. In his new role, Plante will be helping area residents fulfill their home buying and refinancing goals.

Plante (NMLS #1736439) is a former sales assistant with Mortgage Network. Prior to joining the company, he was an accounts payable specialist with Residential Mortgage Services in Portland, Maine. He is originally from Sanford and graduated from the University of Southern Maine with a degree in finance and marketing.

“Spencer’s financial acumen and ability to connect with people have made him an extremely valuable member of our sales team,” said Dean Gilbert, branch manager at Mortgage Network. “He knows the area well and will be able to help residents with all of their mortgage needs, whether buying a home or refinancing. We’re thrilled to see him take on a greater role as a loan officer.”

While the number of available homes for sale has fallen, potential home buyers should not be discouraged, Plante said. “I urge anyone thinking about buying a home to go ahead and get pre-approved now, so they will be confident their financing won’t be an issue when making an offer and entering into a sales contract on a property,” said Plante. “Once you find a home, having that pre-approval letter ready will let sellers know you are a serious, qualified buyer, which can provide some leverage in multiple offer situations.”

“There are many different programs available for all kinds of borrowers and their unique needs,” Plante added. “I look forward to educating borrowers about these programs and helping them determine what works best for their situation.”
