There's a lot to do when you get a mortgage. You would not be researching mortgage loans if it were possible to get a mortgage loan in a single day by filling out a simple application. 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 loan involves four major milestones.

Step one: Decide on your maximum loan amount

This is a function of a couple things. How much of a monthly payment can you afford? What is the maximum you can borrow from a lender, given your income and credit history? You can get a good idea of your preferred payment amount using the calculators on our website. We'll also help you through different scenarios by asking a few simple questions. 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

This is where the rubber meets the road and you save the most money. You will supply details on your current job, your assets, and your residence history. You'll provide 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 pre-qualification letter. Be careful with this letter — it is a useful tool for buying your new home! With this letter, your real estate agent will negotiate the best deal for your new home. The pre-qual letter gives you buying clout! While you're shopping for your new house with your REALTOR™, we find the best program for you.

Step three: apply now! We make it easy

After you've signed the offer and the sellers have accepted, it's time to apply for the loan. It's very easy, and you can do it online, right here on our website. At the end of this step, we will order an appraisal of your new home.

Step four: funding

The real estate agents will find an escrow/title company to handle the "funding" of the loan and closing of the sale. We'll coordinate with this company to make sure all the papers your lender needs are in order, and you'll probably}likely sign all these papers at this company's officeWe coordinate with this company on your date to close. Since you don't need to worry with this coordination, you can concentrate on moving logistics, paint colors, new carpet, and all the details of getting your new house.
