RISMEDIA, June 2, 2009-In an effort to add comfort and peace of mind for today’s home buyers, Real Living is offering mortgage payment protection to buyers who purchase a home through Real Living and utilize Real Living Mortgage between June 1 and Aug. 31, 2009 in the Central Ohio, Dayton, Cincinnati and Louisville Metro areas.
“In today’s uncertain economy, Real Living is investing in programs like our Peace of Mind Plan to provide reassurance for our consumers,” said Harley E. Rouda, Jr., CEO of Real Living. “Our intention is to give home buyers added comfort, and help them achieve the American dream of homeownership.”
According to the company, buyers who go into contract between June 1, 2009 and Aug. 31, 2009 (and close prior to Sept. 30, 2009) with a Real Living agent and finance through Real Living Mortgage will receive the Peace of Mind Plan that covers a monthly mortgage payment of up to $1,500 for up to six months if they become involuntarily unemployed during the first year after they purchase their new home.
The plan will be extended for an additional year of protection if the buyer purchases a Real Living listing, and finances through Real Living Mortgage. “The one year extension of the Plan will be a huge benefit for our sellers,” said Nicole Yoder-Barnhart, a Real Living HER agent. “It sends a clear message to all of our listing customers that our firm is making every effort to sell their home.”
Additionally, Real Living is offering its Peace of Mind Plan to customers who refinance their current mortgage through Real Living Mortgage. “Many who bought a home in the past few years have interest rates that significantly exceed current rates,” said Rouda. “Real Living and our agents support a full service environment for customers and extending the Peace of Mind Plan to refinance borrowers is another way for our agents to reach out and provide value even after they’ve bought their home.”
