myEnergyLoan is enhancing its website and seeking your input on the information you would find most useful for green real estate finance.  Our Green Pages at http://www.myenergyloan.com, will become a hub that you can search for up-to-date information associated with Green Real Estate, especially as it relates to green real estate finance and green loans (aka Green Lending).

While the Energy Efficient Mortgage continues to be a staple loan product that is under-utilized, we have recently seen people cobble together incentive dollars and local energy loans to reduce their homes’ operating costs.  Their homes are more comfortable and healthier overall.

Look for more coming soon and please pardon our re-construction!  And as always, thank you for your support.

add your green building listing on the myEnergyLoan Finance Hub  services by calling the 800 number on http://www.myenergyloan.com.

Green Building vendors may qualify for free listings only.

The following article was written two years ago, before the green lending world changed…our affiliations with Prospect Mortgage and Building Science Academy did not go well after HUD changed mortgage rules and our JV was dismantled, to the dismay of all partners involved.  It was quite sad to see so much hard work and dedication not bear fruit based solely on HUD changes.  For information on the story of myEnergyLoan, please contact jcole@myenergyloan.com.

Last week, after more than 9 months in the making, Prospect Mortgage, the nation’s #1 Independent Retail Mortgage Lender and myEnergyLoan, the nation’s #1 green loan brand, have executed a major strategic alliance that enables Prospect Mortgage to serve the rapidly emerging green real estate marketplace.

As the cornerstone of the initiative, Prospect Mortgage will base its green lending offerings around the myEnergyLoan marketing and service platforms which have relentlessly provided the market with much needed quality assurance for the “energy side” of the green loan transaction since 2005.

Further, as a result of the partnership, Prospect Mortgage becomes the first world-class mortgage lender to make the Energy Efficient Mortgage (EEM) and Energy Improvement Mortgage (EIM) available in all 50 states with dedicated product subject matter experts and unsurpassed quality assurance to benefit the homeowners it serves.  These loans allow you to finance energy efficiency in a way that guarantees you will receive a net tangible financial benefit through reduced operating expenses for your home and they may make you eligible for additional incentives available through public utility companies as well as Federal, State or Local energy efficiency programs.

Rolling out in key markets, the JV with Prospect Mortgage enables the myEnergyLoan platform to advance its market-leading green loan brand as it responds to consumer needs at a critical time in green real estate market development.

Please contact Jeff Cole at myenergyloan@tampabay.rr.com if you would like to learn how to obtain an EEM, EIM or 203K/EEM/EIM hybrid loan through the Prospect Mortgage/myEnergyLoan JV.

————-Those Loan Officers who are frustrated with not being able to offer the EEM or EIM loans are encouraged to inquire about any potentially available loan officer positions in their markets————

Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) July 29, 2010

Building Science Energy Services (BSES) became an investment partner with myEnergyLoan™ on June 25, 2010, purchasing one-third of the company. The partnership will enable BSES to provide home builders and remodelers enhanced financing options for their end-users, homeowners.

“We think the financing piece is critical to contractors in the industry. They can’t rely on tax incentives and rebates to create work for them long-term. With the lower rates myEnergyLoan offers, contractors and homeowners have a financing option that can be funded by their energy savings while adding value to the homes,” said Kim Phillipi, BSES partner.

“By offering the myEnergyLoan finance option, BSES provides even more value to its clients while extending the reach of the valuable programs that myEnergyLoan offers,” added Jeff Cole, CEO, myEnergyLoan.

A national network of mortgage lenders, real estate agents and energy contractors, myEnergyLoan provides practical home financing solutions for green home buyers, owners, and investors. Since 2005, it has funded millions of dollars in green loan packages; borrowers participating in the program have received thousands of dollars in myEnergyLoan efficiency credits. These credits have helped homeowners save money, improve the energy efficiency of their homes and enjoy better health and quality of life.

BSES provides services to state agencies (implementing Home Performance with Energy Star Programs), utility companies and contractors in the green build and retrofit industry. Consulting, training, certification, implementation and facilitation services enable its clients to comply with federal and state programs while delivering real energy savings to home and business owners.

myEnergyLoan™ serves the green building community on a National level through our support for local green businesses and lenders who deliver resources and capital to homeowners for green homes.

I am proud to have been voted one of Tampa’s leading green professional’s.  Talk about your “psychic pay”…” – jeff cole

For those of you who do not regularly read Creative Loaf ing, please note that this free weekly newspaper covers sustainability more thoroughly and more accurately than any other local publication or news outlet in Tampa, FL.  Known as “alternative newsweeklies,” Creative Loafing is a chain of local newspapers in Chicago, Washington, DC, Atlanta, Tampa and Sarasota.  Given our current economic crisis and a couple of HUGE financial mistakes, they have been forced to reorganize their media group; however, I strongly recommend reading them each week for an irreverant, call-it-like-you-see-it journalistic style.  A must read for Republican’s and Democrats alike – even us independents love this paper!!!
