Buyers beware! Stay away from banks! They DO NOT want to lend anyone money right now but they will STILL take your fees! Charter One, Chase, Wells Fargo, Home Savings are only going to charge you fees and NEVER allow the loan to go through. They get LOW appraisals and then once the house goes into underwriting, they say their OWN appraisal is wrong and then keep getting appraisals lower and lower and lower until the seller cannot afford to sell anymore. 30,000 off the price of a 125,000 house is TOTAL BS! They are only there to rip you off and take the commission off your fees.
Only go to places who make it their ONLY business to give you a home loan. Ask your realtor for the names of mortgage people who have been able to get things through. There is home money out there. You have to go to the right company. The biggest real estate company in the area has it's own mortgage company AND 125 million per month available for home loans.

Boardman has done a lousy job attacking this problem. Their trustees are like a bunch of turtles hiding their heads inside their shells.Attention elected officials: You do not wait until the wolf is at the door. You are elected (hired) to do what is in the best interest of your community. Nobody cares if your job is part time, full time, low pay or high pay. You ran for the job, got it, now do it! While you were hiding in your shells you allowed precious time to tick away, leaving your community at risk. You have let down those who elected you, those who live in your community, businesses that have located inside your community and anyone who travels to or through your community.Union bashers can fault unions all they want but unions do not set the level of pay. The elected officials vote for or against contracts. Police, fire and service workers are generally prohibited from going out on strike by law.They knew this day was coming over a year ago and what did they do? They waited until March of an election year to scare-straight the residents of Boardman.Shame on you Boardman Trustees. You could have had something on the ballot next week but you preferred to terrorize your community for the next 7 months. In China, ineffective leaders are often executed. Too bad we cannot arrange an export of the ineffective Boardman leaders.
