Waives $4.5 Million in Fees for Active Military and Veterans

In the three years since launching its VA Home Loan Advantage program, Prosperity Home Mortgage, LLC, (Prosperity) has saved active-duty military members and veterans over $4.5 million in origination and appraisal fees. The full-service mortgage banker has funded over $1.1 billion and closed 3,349 VA home loans since November 11, 2014, when the program first began.

The VA Home Loan Advantage program continues to be offered to all Prosperity clients purchasing or refinancing a home using a VA loan.  The program waives the company’s standard origination fee and provides eligible clients with a lender credit to pay for the cost of a home appraisal.1

“As a veteran-founded organization, Long & Foster firmly believes in supporting those who have served our country in the military,” said Jeffrey S. Detwiler, CEO of The Long & Foster Companies, parent company of Prosperity. “That’s why we are delighted to celebrate this milestone and have the opportunity to offer all the benefits of a VA home loan, while also helping our service members and veterans to lower their cost of purchasing or refinancing a home.”

In addition, Prosperity is proud to share that Jonathan Haug, a senior mortgage consultant based in Virginia Beach, Virginia, has been recognized as the company’s top producing VA home loan officer. Haug closed over 225 VA home loans with associated volumes over $61 million since Jan. 1, 2014. Haug is also a member of Prosperity’s Chairman’s Club for 2016, was named to Mortgage Executive Magazine’s Top 1% of Mortgage Originators in America 2016 list, and was recognized as one of the Virginia Housing Development Authority’s Top Producing Loan Officers in VHDA’s Fiscal Year 2017.

“It’s fantastic to see Jonathan receive this well-deserved recognition, and we are thrilled to have reached the $1 billion mark in VA loan fundings as a company,” said Tim Wilson, CEO of Prosperity. “We are very proud of the hard work that each of our mortgage consultants has put forth to make homeownership a reality for military service members and veterans, and it’s because of that ongoing commitment that we remain among the top lenders in the nation.”

Ron Wivagg, national sales support manager for Prosperity, echoed Wilson’s thoughts.  “Prosperity is in the business of financing homeownership and the American Dream, and our VA clients are a very important part of our business,” Wivagg said. “We have employees who have friends and family in the military, and it is imperative to us that we serve those who have diligently served our nation.”

Additional incentive offers for settlement services and home inspections are also available in certain geographical locations.2,3  Ask your mortgage consultant to find out if additional incentives are available in your area!

Prosperity Home Mortgage, LLC, Introduces HomeBuyer Boost

Prosperity Home Mortgage, LLC, (Prosperity) has introduced a new program, HomeBuyer Boost, to help responsible, creditworthy buyers achieve the goal of homeownership.

Earlier this year, Prosperity offered a program in which our clients qualified for $2.5 million in down payment or closing assistance. The new HomeBuyer Boost program sets aside up to an additional $1 million in closing cost assistance for qualified low- to moderate-income borrowers. HomeBuyer Boost is a conventional loan that has flexible terms with an additional boost.

The program offers the following to qualified borrowers:

  • Low down payment available. Up to 97 percent financing for purchase of a primary residence (one-unit properties).
  • Flexible sources of funds can be used for the down payment and closing costs with no minimum contribution required from the borrower’s own funds (1-unit properties).
  • Income from all borrowers on the loan must be used to qualify. Income may not exceed 100 percent of the HUD area median income for the property’s location.1
  • Extended-income household may allow non-borrower income to be considered toward the borrower’s debt-to-income ratio when qualifying the borrower for the mortgage.2
  • Reduced mortgage insurance coverage requirements for loans with loan-to-values (LTV) greater than 90 percent, up to 97 percent.
  • Homeownership education helps buyers get ready to buy a home and be prepared for the responsibilities of homeownership. The required training offers an easy-to-use, online course provided by Framework.

The additional Boost includes:

  • $1,000 program credit toward closing costs for clients who are at or below 80 percent of the area median income limit.3
  • $500 program credit to borrowers who get one-on-one homeownership education through a HUD-approved counseling agency prior to signing a purchase contract.4
  • Job loss protection for two years for eligible borrowers through MortgageAssureSM. This unemployment insurance can help cover up to six monthly mortgage payments in the event of an involuntary, unexpected job loss, to help borrowers avoid falling behind or defaulting on their mortgage.5

“For individuals and families who are ready to buy a home, our HomeBuyer Boost program offers incentives that may help them get the house they want,” said Tim Wilson, CEO of Prosperity Home Mortgage. “By taking part in the approved homeownership education program, they can receive an additional incentive and gain a better understanding of the responsibilities of homeownership.”

Haug to lead the brokerage’s real estate operations in Richmond, Hampton Roads, Charlottesville and Southwest Virginia

Brian Haug, a mortgage and real estate professional with over 15 years of experience, has been named Senior Vice President of Real Estate and Mortgage for Long & Foster Real Estate, the nation’s No. 1 private residential real estate company by sales volume. Haug will oversee operations of Long & Foster’s Richmond, Hampton Roads and Southwest Virginia regions, ensuring the company’s and its real estate agents’ ongoing success.

In this role, Haug will manage the nearly 45 Long & Foster offices and around 1,300 Long & Foster agents throughout Southern Virginia. He will work closely with the company’s regional and office leadership, determining the best marketing, technology and operational programs to grow the business and the brand. Haug will also take on a strategic consulting role with Prosperity Home Mortgage, LLC, a full-service mortgage banker and wholly owned subsidiary of The Long & Foster Companies—parent company of Long & Foster Real Estate.

“I’m honored and thrilled to take on this leadership position with Long & Foster Real Estate and to work with even more of the brokerage’s exceptional agents and managers,” said Haug. “Throughout my career, I’ve focused on helping agents to achieve success in the industry—learning about their needs, collaborating on strategic ideas and assisting them in growing their businesses. I look forward to building on that foundation in my new role—helping all our team to reach our best potential and dominate the marketplace in Richmond, Hampton Roads, Charlottesville and Southwest Virginia.”

Haug comes to Long & Foster Real Estate from Prosperity, where he most recently served as the firm’s area manager in the highly competitive Washington, D.C., and Montgomery County, Maryland, markets. In that position, he oversaw mortgage operations and sales, leading a team of more than 80 loan officers, financing assistants and operations staff. Haug’s strategic approach to the business, working to build win-win relationships between Prosperity and its real estate partners, brought great results. Under his leadership, the two divisions of Prosperity not only achieved double-digit market share growth, but also earned the highest customer satisfaction scores ever.

Prior to that position, Haug worked with Prosperity in Southern Virginia for about a decade. He joined the team as a mortgage consultant, working with Long & Foster Real Estate’s Midlothian, Virginia, office. There, he built strong relationships with Long & Foster and other brokerage real estate agents, closing hundreds of transactions annually. A few years later, he was promoted to branch manager for Prosperity’s Richmond and Southwest Virginia regions, and he led that area until he transferred to his most recent role in the D.C. market.

“Working at Prosperity and with our Long & Foster teams, Brian has distinguished himself not only for being an inspirational leader, but also a person who truly listens to and learns from his peers and staff,” said Gary Scott, president of Long & Foster Real Estate. “I’m confident these abilities, as well as his positive approach to the business and his successful background in the mortgage industry, will benefit our agents and our companies tremendously in the years to come.”

Not only did Haug start his career in Southern Virginia, but also he has deep roots within the area. He attended high school in Hampton Roads and graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond. He also discovered his passion for real estate while attending VCU, when he purchased an investment property near the university. That first purchase led to another and then to a successful career in the mortgage and real estate industries and Haug looks forward to returning to the area that started his career.
