For all those who find themselves in the labyrinth of real estate lending, Adrean J. Rudie brings us The Mortgage Loan Process. Rudie leads the way outfitted with a mortgage lending license, a full suite of insurance licenses, the series 6 & 63 limited securities licenses, and experience enough to be considered an authority on the lending process. Rudie's compilation of information and material is broad and allows a reader in the market for any type of real estate loan to partake without fear of language too pretentious to follow or so simplistic that it comes across as patronizing. Rudie creates an even-handed and balanced bridge, 27 years in the making, for those who require a complete overview.
The first thing that struck me in reading The Mortgage Loan Process is the voice Adrean J. Rudie imparts to her writing. Like a friend explaining how a process is going to pan out over coffee at my kitchen table, I am instantly trusting of Rudie even though I do not know her. I recently watched my brother bumble through a VA loan with a lender-slash-realtor who seemed to be less qualified than he initially boasted about, and when the terms of the transaction were made clear my brother walked away before he was robbed blind. Rudie is the exact opposite and it shows in how she delivers every piece of information down to the most minute details. I never knew the purpose of escrow or what title insurance was actually for, nor was I privy to what formulates the different types of interest rates and the risk factors involved for both the lender and the purchaser. Anyone who goes out on a limb and decides to proceed with a mortgage would be doing themselves a disservice in skipping over this book.
