At Rampone-Marsh Mortgages, we provide excellent mortgage services for purchases, refinances, renewals and the list goes on. We know mortgages inside and out, and best of all we do all of the legwork! In most cases, our services are free and we have access to over 50 lenders.

What is an earnest deposit?
This is a sum of money given to bind the sale of real estate, or a sum of money given to ensure payment or an advance of funds in the processing of a loan.
Why is an appraisal necessary?
Every conventional mortgage that includes a minimum 20% down payment requires an appraisal because the mortgage is uninsured. The lender wants to see that your purchase price is in line with the property’s fair market value. Lenders want to see that you are purchasing a quality property and that they will be able to recuperate the full amount if you default on the loan.
