The Loan Process: an Overview

There can be no doubt that getting a mortgage is a complicated process. You wouldn't be visiting our website if you could fill out a one-page application and receive the best loan check cut in one 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.

There are four important steps involved in getting a mortgage loan.

Step one: determine how much you can borrow

A couple of factors determine this amount. How much of a monthly payment can you afford? And given your unique credit and employment history, income and debt, and goals, how much will a lender loan you? 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

You'll give us information on your employment, asset, and residence history. We will get your credit report and score (with your permission. When we review this info we will provide a letter of pre-qualification. Handle it with care — it can be a great tool when you make your offer! Your agent will likely use the pre-qual (as they may call it) in order to make the best offer on the home you choose. While you're shopping for a new home with your real estate agent, we find the best program for you.

Step three: apply for your loan
