The Loan Process: an Overview

There's little doubt ; getting a mortgage loan is a complicated process. You wouldn't be here on our website if it were possible to complete a one-page mortgage application and get an excellent loan funded 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.

Getting a home loan involves four major steps.

Step one: Decide on your maximum loan amount

A couple of factors determine this amount. 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. 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 information on your employment, asset, and residence history. We pull your credit score and report. We'll review all this info and will give you a pre-qualification letter. Be careful with this letter — it can be a useful tool for buying your new home! Your agent will use the pre-qual (as they may call it) in order to make the best offer on the home you choose. While you're looking for a new home with your agent, we find the best program for you.

Step three: apply for your loan

Once you have made the offer and the sellers have accepted, you should complete the loan application.
