Low And No Documentation Loans

You probably have seen the television commercial: the loan officer comes into the room with a stack of papers for the mortgage seekers and promises to return later to see how they are doing. Intimidated by the paperwork, the couple splits the scene and upon returning the loan officer realizes he lost another customer to the competition.

Although there are some exaggerations being made in the commercial, there is one evident truth that rings loudest: nobody likes to fill out a lot of paperwork!
