Contempo Lending is a local Palm Springs Mortgage Broker specializing in all types of Residential Lending. In today’s lending world it’s more important than ever to have a mortgage specialist to sit down with and discuss your personal situation and mortgage options. We can help everyone from first time home buyers, less than perfect credit buyer, and the savviest of real estate investors. While some people think you pay more by going through a broker the fact is that we can get you better rates and save you money on your closing costs. While most direct banks offer you only their products which many times require the perfect borrower scenario, at Contempo Lending we deal with many different lenders so we can shop and find you the best programs and rates available. Some of our clients often think they would not be qualified for a loan due to previously being turned down by other lenders. We either help them into their dream home or at least set them up on a plan to buy in the very near future. We are qualified mortgage specialists that can sit with you to make sure you understand your options and the process. There are still many other programs available that the average consumer is not aware of. Below is just a partial list of some the more popular programs still out there:
$1· FHA you can still buy with as little as 3.5% down. There are still down payment assistance.
$1· VA Loans you can still do 100% financing and in some cases even include all your closing cost.
$1· USDA loans you can still do 100% financing in many desert cities.
$1· Homepath Programs with as little as 3% down.
$1· Renovation loans can get you up to $30,000 with as little as 3% down on Homepath properties or 3.5% with FHA loans.
$1· Jumbo programs available are still available. You can even qualify using only your assets and little income.
Many people think they can not possible qualify for a home loan in today’s complicated lending world. Just because you’re a first home buyer or self employed doesn’t mean you can’t qualify. One of the most fulfilling parts of our job is to work with our borrowers and get them into the right loan for them and their dream home.

Metropolitan Community Church (MCC) was started in order to look at faith through fresh eyes, eyes informed by the LGBTQ insight of exclusion and struggle, but also the ancient and still-radical ideas of the early Christian church. Since 1968 we have founded our belief upon actions – from being the first to perform same sex marriages, to suing the state of California (first in 1970) to recognize marriage equality, to fighting for acceptance and equality in places as diverse as Uganda and Jamaica, Russia and Brazil. We have also led a theological movement that seeks to see sex and the body as good, positive and beloved, not a source of shame.
Here at MCC in the Coachella Valley, Rev Clinton, our pastor, believes we stand or fall on being a radical community of faith that welcomes and celebrates members, not merely tolerates them. Churches come in lots of flavors, but unless we are seeking a relationship with God and community (whatever that looks like), then shopping for flavors will never taste right. Rev Crawshaw was ordained in England as an Anglican Priest, was educated at Oxford and is proud to call both MCC and the Coachella valley his home of choice. He also serves as Vice Chair of the denominational Governing Board and is able to directly link the work of the church across the world (in 22 countries) with the local community here. Come and investigate! We are blessed with a newly refurbished church campus and ample parking, and can be found at 32150 Candlewood Drive, Cathedral City, CA 92234 760 512 1700 Facebook.com/MCCoftheCV www.MCCCV.net 10am on Sunday!
