An Overview of the Mortgage Loan Process

There's little doubt ; getting a mortgage is a complex process. You wouldn't be here on our site if you could complete a simple loan app and get an excellent loan check cut the same day. We do most of the heavy lifting for you, so you can concentrate on what's important — preparing to move into your new home or saving money.

Getting a home loan involves four major steps.

Step one: determine how much you can borrow

This is a function of a couple things. What kind of monthly payment are you looking for? What is the maximum you can borrow from a lender, given your income and credit history? Use the calculators on our website to determine your monthly payment amount. And we can guide you to the right loan amount and best program for you when you answer a few quewstions. Because lender guidelines are fairly standard, we can give you a good idea of how much you can borrow after a short conversation.

Step two: pre-qualify for your loan

This is where the process really begins and you save the most money. You will give us info on your employment, assets, and residence history. You'll supply your employment, asset, and residence history information. We will get your credit report and score (only after you give your permission, of course). After we've reviewed this information, we'll give you a pre-qualificaiton letter. Handle it with care — it is a useful tool when you make your offer! With this letter, your real estate agent will negotiate the best deal for your new home. While you're shopping for a new home with your real estate agent, we find the best program for you.

Step three: apply now! We make it easy

After you've made an offer and the sellers have accepted, it's time to apply for the loan. It couldn't be easier, and you can apply online, right here on our website. When the time is right, we will order an appraisal of your new home.

Step four: your loan is funded

Your REALTOR® and the seller's will coordinate to decide on a title company to handle the funding of your loan. We'll coordinate with this company to ensure the papers your lender will require are in order, and you will probably}likely sign everything at this company's officeWe work with with this company on your closing date. Since you will not have to worry with this coordination, you get to think about moving logistics, painting, carpet, and the details involved in getting a new house.
