Whatever your life season,
your home matters.
Whether you’re buying for the first time, downsizing to a more manageable space or planning a renovation, you need access to cash. But a mortgage comes with questions:
● How much money do I need to afford the home I want?
● What’s affordable and comfortable for my budget?
● What am I qualified for based on my current income?
You need access to all the available financing options so you can make the best decision.
You Wouldn’t Settle on Your Home Purchase. Don’t Settle on Your Loan.
Most people don’t realize they have multiple options when it comes to a mortgage. You don’t have to sign the first loan presented to you.
At Covenant Mortgage, we sit down face to face to review your current financial situation and determine which loan makes the most sense. For more than 25 years, Bob Rankin has been advising clients on the entire loan process. Mortgages are about more than interest rates.
You need to look at all the terms of the loan and the repayment process and timeline. Can you truly afford this loan?
Let’s answer that question together.
3 Steps to Choosing the Right Mortgage Loan
We keep the process as simple as possible. In fact, it’s often easier than choosing
the right shade of “white” for your house.

Why Work with Covenant Mortgage?
Mortgage lenders are everywhere. You can get a loan from your bank or apply for a mortgage via a mobile app. But should you trust such a major commitment to someone you don’t know and who certainly doesn’t know you and your financial situation?
We take the time to understand your finances – today and in the future. We learn about your goals and long-term plans. All of those factor into what kind of mortgage you need and can afford.
We’ll give you straight answers and honest advice – even if that means not working with us.
We stand confident in our process. We care about you as a client and as a neighbor here in the Columbia area. If we dish out bad advice, we run the risk of an awkward encounter at the grocery store. No one wants that. We prefer hugs and high-fives.
