Roadmap To Your New Home Loan
Step One: Pre-Qualification
We will have you fill out an application on our website. This will allow us to pull credit. We will also collect income and asset documentation to make sure you have a solid pre-qualification. Once you are pre-qualified, we can give you an idea of the price range of house you can afford, so that you can start house shopping!
Step Two: House Shopping
Once you have been pre-qualified, you can contact your agent or realtor and start shopping for houses you like in the range you can afford. Once you find a house you want, you will make an offer and we will begin the process of setting up your loan.
Step Three: Setup and Processing
Once your loan moves to processing we will be updating and verifying all of the information you provided to us at pre-qualification. We will also order and appraisal, title work and insurance for your property. Keep an eye out for communications from us so that you can help us make the process faster. Processing will analyze your situation and prepare your loan for Underwriting.
Step Four: Underwriting
Once your loan has made it through processing it will move to our Underwriting Department. Underwriting will review your loan and all documentation to verify that it meets all guidelines and make sure everything is in the clear for closing.
Step Five: Closing
You will receive closing instructions with the day, time, and location of your closing. You will also receive a Closing Disclosure 3 days before you loan closing date that you will need to sign so keep a look out for it.
Step Six: You’re A Homeowner!
Congratulations! You’re A New Homeowner!
