Nevada State Bank expands its mortgage service team to meet market demand

While other financial institutions are cutting back or eliminating their mortgage services, Nevada State Bank is gearing up.LAS VEGAS – While other financial institutions are cutting back or eliminating their mortgage services, Nevada State Bank is gearing up.

Over the past several years, home refinancing due to low interest rates and special government programs like the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) fueled a huge boom in the mortgage market. At the same time, inventory levels fell to record lows in Nevada, preventing many buyers from purchasing a new home.

With interest rates going up, more inventory becoming available, and investors on the sidelines, the purchase market in Nevada is heating up.

“We’re expanding our team with seasoned loan officers who have consistently originated purchase loans," said Mike Gould, senior vice president and residential mortgage lending manager. “While other organizations are downsizing the large refinance teams they have built over the last few years, Nevada State Bank is growing our purchase team to handle the demand of first-time home buyers, and move-up clients in the communities that we serve.”

Nevada State Bank helps Nevadans become homeowners through a full spectrum of residential lending, whether someone is starting out small as a first-time buyer, upgrading for a growing family, shifting gears to a retirement home or building the custom home of their dreams.

“Whether it is first-time home buyers looking for help in finding the right programs like down payment assistance, grants and tax credits, experienced home buyers looking for a product that fits the unique needs of their family, or luxury buyers with complex tax returns, Nevada State Bank has local, experienced mortgage teams that are accessible, available, and ready to help,” said Gould.

Homebuyers must meet certain qualifications to receive the best rates and loan terms. Homebuyers interested in learning more about mortgage financing options available from Nevada State Bank can call 1-866-950-2955 for more information and details or visit
