mortgage imageBuoyed by continued growth in the local real estate market, The Mortgage House has added a new office in Atascadero. The regional mortgage banker’s new location at 7340 Morro Road joins The Mortgage House’s offices in San Luis Obispo and Santa Maria in serving clients throughout the tri-counties.

The Mortgage House Senior Vice President and Division President Roxanne Carr said that increasing rent costs combined with historically low interest rates are generating new homebuyer demand.

“Many renters are rethinking home ownership. With today’s low rates, it is often less costly to own a home than to rent one, though careful consideration should be given to making this move,” Carr said.

Carr said that The Mortgage House, celebrating its 20th year serving the Central Coast this June, does a great deal of business in the North County and wanted a centralized location to support clients. Loan officers Kathy Rogers and Maurica Anderson are located in the Atascadero office, and plans call for two more loan originators to be added soon.

Founded in 1995, The Mortgage House is a direct lender that offers an extensive selection of loan programs to meet the requirements of almost every borrower, including purchase loans, reverse mortgages, and refinances. All decisions are made locally. For more information, visit
