6 Things REALTORS® Should Know About Financing Right Now 
 
1. The lending environment remains favorable for qualified buyers
 
2. Getting pre-qualified and pre-approved for a mortgage before shopping around for homes is as important as ever
 
3. Home sales and median prices are on the rise across much of Illinois 
 
4. Credit scores play a key role in determining loan eligibility and interest rates
 
5. If traditional banks and lenders aren’t a good match for your buyers, consider credit unions, community banks, and/or the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (if your buyers qualify for a VA loan)
 
6. Now is the time to educate yourself on the new TILA-RESPA disclosure rules, and the newly-combined Truth-in-Lending forms.
