NEW! Anyone need an ALL CASH OFFER program?

I am excited to announce that Guild is releasing an all cash program to help our buyers win the deal.

This program allows my credit-approved borrowers to submit an all-cash offer, using proof of funds from Guild, to enter into contract with no financing or appraisal contingencies. Yes, you heard this right. If Guild Mortgage cannot close the buyer’s loan in time to meet the contract requirements, they will guarantee to pay cash for the home and then close the buyer’s loan. AND we can also couple this with our fantastic Lock and Shop program. So lock your rate today, find your dream home, offer in cash, and we finalize the loan.

This is a game changer for us, and you get exclusive access to this program now because I am on the pilot program. Text or call me for more details (916-257-1470 dtharp@guildmortgage.net)
