Des Moines, Iowa– The Nevada, Utah and Idaho communities now have another option when it comes to looking for a low-cost, low-fee mortgage. Nationwide Advantage Mortgage CompanySM is expanding its new loan officer team to serve the communities and to provide an easy mortgage process that features 10-minute approvals and streamlined documentation.
