Mortgages Returns as Title Sponsor for 4th Annual Summer Nationals

The 4th Annual Summer Nationals will once again see and Real Mortgage Associates title sponsoring the third event in the DSE Automotive Sportsman Racing Series, which will also play host to two major NHRA Events in 2015 one being the NHRA National Dragster Challenge and the other featuring the Jr Drag Racing League Challenge.

Working as a mortgage agent Steve Hayward has over 35 lenders (including some major banks) to bring you the best mortgage products to suit your needs. Be it, a First time home buyer, refinance or a renewal it is in your best interest to sign your mortgage agreement with a licensed agent. Agents like Steve work for you in your best interest. Even when signing a mortgage agreement with a great rate at a bank branch, there can be so much hidden in that contract that can cost the borrower thousands of additional dollars.

“I cannot express enough how important it is to consult a licensed agent before you sign a mortgage agreement. Bank branches work under different legislation, they do not require there “mortgage specialists” to be licensed thus the reps you deal with are taught to sell full disclosure is not mandated. There is so much to look out for, like huge penalty formulas, collateral charges and even rate tricks such as rate switches. There are some very simple tell tails on a mortgage agreement to show how you can save money, and my goal is to help you in doing that, best thing is I’m paid by the lenders not you!” stated Mr. Hayward
He would go on to add “The great support from the racers in the DSE Series last year brings me back this season. Thanks to all who came to me and referred family and friends. I’m now well into my second year as an agent and have a passion for what I do”

The Highlight of the Summer Nationals will be the NHRA National Dragster Challenge and the NHRA Jr Drag Racing League Challenge, which will allow Racers in Super Pro, Modified, Quick 16, Street Eliminator, Super Bike/Sled and Jr Dragster to compete for authentic NHRA Wally Trophies during the weekend. Jr Dragster Competitors will actually have two opportunities at NHRA Wally’s as both Saturday and Sunday’s main event winners will take home the coveted Trophies.
