    I just ran across this blog…please note that myenergyloan has been dedicated to green lending for three years now and we are the nation’s leading green loan incentive program – we actually give a large piece of our profit directly to back to clients as myenergyloan efficiency credits when we close their loan.

    Translation: we start by giving 1/2% back at closing as a credit which can be taken as savings or it can be used to buy down a permanent interest rate.

    No need for smoke and mirrors – we do this because we want to serve sustainable consumers and we don’t believe in hosing our clients!

    Why isn’t your lender doing this? He will, if you make mynergyloan your mortgage partner on the next green real estate investment you make!
