Due to low home inventory and heavy competition among buyers, company's newest loan officer encourages buyers to plan ahead

DANVERS, MA – June 15, 2021 – Mortgage Network, Inc., one of the largest independent mortgage lenders in the eastern U.S., announced that Craig Skinner has joined the company’s Lexington, South Carolina branch as a loan officer to help South Carolina residents with their home financing needs.

Skinner (NMLS #2055590) said most South Carolina homes are selling over asking price with multiple offers, so homebuyers should be prepared to act fast.

“Our local market is similar to most of the country right now, as we are experiencing significantly lower inventory and increased demand,” said Skinner. “I tell buyers to be patient and make sure they get qualified for financing before making an offer on a home. By planning early and finding a trusted loan officer to work with, buyers will be ready to make a strong offer and move forward once their offer is accepted.”

A Laurens, South Carolina native, Skinner moved to Columbia in 2007 to attend the University of South Carolina, where he received a degree in marketing and management. Prior to joining Mortgage Network, he served as a personal financial advisor with Edward Jones.

“It’s great to have Craig on our team,” said Lexington branch manager Travis Wright. “Professionalism, strong communication and great customer service are exactly what people have come to expect from Mortgage Network, and his strengths and skills check all these boxes. He also has strong ties to the area and a deep understanding of the local market. I look forward to watching him become a leader at our company.”

“I’m proud to be part of the Mortgage Network team and guiding people through the mortgage process,” said Skinner. “We have so many different mortgage loan options to fit just about any home financing need. Whether someone wants to buy a home or refinance, my goal is to help them make informed decisions and create a seamless experience.”
