St. Louis, Missouri (February 26, 2013) – Cornerstone Mortgage, Inc. proudly announces ProLoan approval status.

Cornerstone Mortgage, Inc. has been approved to offer the exclusive ProLoan mortgage. Cornerstone Mortgage, Inc. is one of only five mortgage firms to offer the product in the St. Louis metropolitan area. The ProLoan offers home-buyers rate protection and peace of mind for the purchase of a newly constructed home. Buyers of quality built homes utilizing skilled union craftsmen are able to eliminate the worry of rising interest rates during construction. This extended rate protection is provided at no additional cost to the home-buyer.

While many home loan lenders offer rate locks between 45 – 90 days in length, the borrower typically pays a premium for such protection. A new home-buyer working with Cornerstone Mortgage, Inc. and an approved home builder will receive 90 days of rate protection at no additional charge plus the opportunity to float down if rates improve prior to closing.

Cornerstone Mortgage, Inc. was approved for the program based on its proven track record and commitment to outstanding customer service. In addition to consistently maintaining an A+ accredited rating with the Better Business Bureau, Cornerstone Mortgage, Inc. was recently named a Silver Award Winner for loan production in 2012 by the Missouri Development Housing Commission.

Regarding the importance of the ProLoan approval, Jim Dean, company President/CEO commented, “With interest rates at such record lows, home-buyers run the risk of rates rising during construction. We can now protect our customers from that risk and provide valuable peace of mind. We anticipate 2013 to be a very good year for the purchase of newly constructed homes and we expect to lead the way in home loan production in the St. Louis market place!”
