Rates are going…?

The Federal Reserve announced they would leave interest rates alone for the time being at the end of their 2 day meeting September 20 – 21stating that the case for an increase in rates had “strengthened” but wanted to “wait for further evidence of continued progress toward its objectives.” The speculation is already starting as to whether they will raise rates at their next meeting scheduled for November 1 -2.

An Honor to Serve

At Veterans United, we recognize the tremendous privilege we enjoy through our service to Veterans and military families. We aim to take care of those who served with knowledge, expertise and a commitment to service. Here’s what one Veteran had to say:

“It started with an idea to get a house. After living 2 yrs in an apartment and wanting to move out, it seemed like only a dream to own a house. The guys at Veterans United Home Loan really made the process as simply and easy as it could be. Anytime I had a question, they were quick to provide a response, options, and were able to be extremely flexible throughout the closing process. A+ experience! Doug went above and beyond, I felt, the level of work needed to just get a loan closed. His communication, professionalism, and ability to cater to my needs were superior. I would highly recommend Doug Lippmann.” — Chris D. from Florida
