1st Advantage Mortgage Changes Name to Draper and Kramer Mortgage

1st Advantage Mortgage LLC has announced that it has changed its name to Draper and Kramer Mortgage Corp. The name change, which reflects the mortgage company’s role since 2008 as the residential mortgage division of national full-service real estate firm Draper and Kramer, Incorporated, coincides with a recent overarching corporate rebranding at Draper and Kramer.

“The 1st Advantage Mortgage name has served us well, but it’s time for a change to reflect how far we’ve come since our start nearly 20 years ago, as well as the history, organization and resources that are behind everything we do as part of Draper and Kramer,” said Paul Lueken, chief executive officer of Lombard, Ill.-based Draper and Kramer Mortgage. “We’ve grown our market share, and we’re a part of something much bigger now. We’re currently licensed in 38 states and growing rapidly, as we’ve recently opened offices in Texas, Massachusetts and Indiana. I’m looking forward to our next chapter and taking the Draper and Kramer name to new parts of the country.

Trump, Republicans reveal tax plan: What to know

Is there an advantage to paying my mortgage payment on the 1st instead of the 10th of the month?

I currently pay my mortgage payment on about the 10th of the month> I'm wondering if I am paying any more interest by not paying it on the 1st when the bank says it is due, but not late.
