Lucky Clients

Soooo our lucky clients and employees now might get a day on Flathead Lake going forward with Captain Dave!

Here are our top boat analogies for Mortgages:

1) “Stay in the Boat!” – same with mortgages.. stay in the boat 🚢 with the lender, Realtor, title, appraisal, insurance… we are in this together
2) “A Rising Tide Raises All Boats” – its ok for everyone to win. At Black Diamond Mortgage, we like win-win deals
3) “All Hands on Deck!” – Stuff happens… when it does, Everyone should rally the solution!
4) “Three Sheets to the Wind” … please don’t do anything on your real estate deal, if this describes you!
5) “Abandon Ship!” .. Hey, sometimes, the deal Should die.. too expensive, too poor condition of a home… if the deal IS Wrong.. Abandon Ship!

Do you have some good ones? Post them below!

The Home Purchase Situation

“Millennials are just reaching peak homebuying age and set to keep demand strong for the foreseeable future. Elevated lumber prices and lot shortages will continue to drag on construction even as starts accelerate. And while mortgage rates have risen from their pandemic-era floor, they still sit at historically low levels and should keep demand robust, the bank said.”
