We know sometimes life happens, and you may have difficulty making payments. Our property tax loans are customized to fit your unique situation and can be flexible to adapt to nearly any loan requirement.
Some lenders will charge you for just about everything. We don’t believe it’s right to charge you for your own loan statements, copies of loan documents, payoff quotes, or any other account maintenance. And speaking of payoffs, we don’t charge any extra fees if you decide to pay off your loan early. In fact, if you can do that, we’ll be happy for you.
We guarantee that our loan terms will be competitive. If you have terms from another lender, just tell us, and we will compare the pros and cons with you. And if we aren’t the best solution, we’ll tell you. We’ll be sad to lose you, but we recognize that the client’s needs come first.
Texas property taxes are already some of the highest in the nation, and when your county starts piling on interest, penalties, and collection fees, it can feel overwhelming. Our loans can reverse all that pressure. We will pay your residential or commercial property tax bill in full. With the pressure gone, we’ll create a repayment plan based on your priorities.
