Start by reviewing an article to check for factual information. Is everything in this article true? Does the article provide an objective view of the topic, offering both pros and cons? Is any information in the article misleading?
If the information in the article is correct, review for clarity. Are unfamiliar mortgage terms clearly defined? Is the information explained in a way that is easy to understand? Is something important missing from this article?
Finally, review the article’s tone and style. Lender411 strives to offer information that is easy to understand and is presented in a friendly and helpful tone.
Alternately, you may use the ‘ track changes’ option in Microsoft Word.
Clearly mark the incorrect information with a strikethrough. Add a comment including a citation (such as a web URL) where the correct information can be found. If you wish, you may write a sentence or paragraph of suggested text to be used in the article.
In order to be listed as a Lender411 Contributing Author, you must make a meaningful contribution to the article. If you cannot find any incorrect information, consider adding more in depth information, defining an unfamiliar mortgage term or explaining a complicated topic in a way that is easier to understand.
Government-sponsored pages are the best resources for mortgage information. Many major bank websites offer resources, such as BankofAmerica.com and WellsFargo.com. Use your best judgement, and always cite your sources so Lender411’s editorial staff can verify that the information you provide is factual.
Hint: A Wikipedia article or blog you find through a Google search is not a trusted source of information.
