Considering that Chicago Cubs fans waited more than a century to celebrate their team’s first World Series victory, after what some are already calling the greatest game in Major League Baseball history, the party is sure to last quite a few days.

And if any of those long-suffering Cubs fans are looking to put a little cherry on top of their World Series sundae by buying a home in the next week, Parkside Lending has a great deal for them.

As noted by mortgage industry insider Rob Chrisman on Thursday morning, in honor of the Cubs’ big win, Parkside is offering all Illinois residents 10.8 (11) basis points special to fee on all rate locks for 7 days (that’s one for each game in the historic series) beginning Monday, November 7 and ending Monday, November 14.

“We are so proud of the Cub’s victory after 108 years,” Matthew Ostrander, chairman and chief executive officer of Parkside Lending, said in an email to HousingWire.

“They never gave up, and their perseverance is a great example to all,” Ostrander added. “This is our small way of honoring and celebrating this historic moment.”
