Jamaicans in Florida to benefit from JNBS Mortgage Seminar

The availability of affordable housing in Jamaica, competitive mortgage interest rates and its speedy pre-approval loan process, are three of the subject areas to be highlighted at the upcoming Mortgage Seminar, to be hosted by Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS) for Jamaicans residing in the state of Florida.

The seminar will take place at the Society’s Tamarac Offices, on Saturday, January 26, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Janice McIntosh, JNBS Chief Representative Officer, said the main focus of the seminar will be to highlight the status of the real estate market in Jamaica; and, to provide a clear understanding about the Society’s pre-approval mortgage process.

“We will use this opportunity to reach out to those persons who are ready to make a home purchase in Jamaica, and need more information before they are able to make the final decision,” she explained, “And, our representatives will be present to provide answers to queries.”

Participants will receive information about the Jamaica National mortgage approval process, including pre-approvals, titles, surveyor’s reports, valuations, closing costs and preliminary interviews.

Persons interested in obtaining a mortgage are invited to the event, Mrs. McIntosh pointed out. This includes those who may have previously been pre-approved for a JN mortgage, but did not complete the process; as well as, those who applied and did not receive approval.

“Due to changes in the pre-approval for mortgages, some persons who may have been declined before will now have an opportunity based on the adjusted requirements,” Mrs. McIntosh stated.  And, she explained that persons should call the JN Representative Office to enquire about the specific documents that they will need to complete the approval process.

Interested persons are invited to contact the JNBS Florida Representative Office at 1-800-390-7850, or by email at [email protected] for additional information.

The JNBS Florida Representative office provides a full range of mortgage services; and is prepared to guide members through the mortgage application, approval and acceptance process.
