The First Step to Buying a Home for Becky and Raymond? Getting Pre-approved at Honor Bank

At Honor Bank, a local community bank, loan approvals and other key decisions are made locally by people who live and work in the community. If you are thinking about buying a new home, make sure your first step is getting a pre-approval at Honor Bank!

When you work with Honor Bank, you will have face-to-face conversations and build real relationships with staff, many of whom may be your friends and neighbors. That’s what Becky and Raymond found out when they met Honor Bank’s, Jim Hills to talk about a home loan. You will appreciate how Honor Bank understands your individual needs. Because of the personal knowledge that is gained, Honor Bank is often able to approve loans that big banks would reject, and in a very short amount of time.

Becky and Raymond want to buy a home, and the first step is to know what they can afford. A Home Buyer’s Edge pre-approval from Honor Bank lets everyone know, from realtors to sellers, that Becky and Raymond are serious buyers for a mortgage they can afford.

At their first meeting, Becky and Raymond will walk out with a pre-approval letter as they begin their search to buy a home. They will know what they can afford and the amount of loan they will qualify for when they are ready to buy.

Whether a first home, next home, vacation home on the lake, or an investment property, Honor Bank has a home loan for you.


The mortgage video was produced by 2188 Studios, a small Michigan production company led by Ben and Lucas Daniels based in Chelsea, Mich., and directed by Michigan native Jeff Daniels, with actors from the Purple Rose Theatre Company, also in Chelsea. And of course, Honor Bank’s Jim Hills starred as himself…a mortgage expert.
