Getting a mortgage loan involves four major steps.

Step one: Decide on your maximum loan amount

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?

Based on standard lender guidelines, we'll get you a good idea of what kind of terms and loan program you can expect to benefit most from.

Step two: complete a pre-qualification

You'll supply your employment, asset, and residence history information. We run your credit score and report. When we review all this info we provide a letter of pre-qualification.

The pre-qual letter gives you buying clout! While you're picking out your new home, we are researching the loan that best fits your needs.

Step three: apply now! We make it easy

Once you have made an offer and the sellers have accepted, you should complete the loan application. It's very easy, and you can apply online, right here on our website.

We'll work with this company to ensure all the papers your lender needs are in order, and you'll probably}likely sign all these papers at their officeWe coordinate with the title company to set your date to close.
