At Radian we want all FTHB to be prepared, so we provide tools to help them understand how buying their first home could be within their reach. A key part of a buyer’s educational journey includes a discussion about the benefits of mortgage insurance -- a financial tool that creates a path to homeownership by allowing buyers to purchase sooner with less money down.
The first thing you notice about New American Funding's Rick and Patty Arvielo is how much they like each other.

For the first time since 1981, our industry is experiencing a rising interest rate environment. Some people may assume that the current market shift means their business will take a downward turn from which they will never recover. I don’t buy it. The way I see it, challenging times force us to refine our processes and practices.
