Exploring all your options when taking out a mortgage loan

I am working on a feature story for consumer Web site on the many options that consumers have when searching for a mortgage loan. As you probably already know, traditional banks and credit unions are originating a smaller percentage of mortgage loans today, while non-banks are closing an increasing percentage. I’d like to receive comments from, or schedule phone interviews with, mortgage and financial professionals about the different options consumers have today when searching for a mortgage, what they should look for when shopping for a loan and what questions they should ask any mortgage lender they do work with. Please send me comments or interview possibilities. I’d be happy to include them in my story, which will run May 22.
