Our Mortgage Process

STEP 1: Apply and Gather Financial Information

1. With a brief initial conversation, we’ll get you preliminary qualification answers and mortgage options to review.

2. We’ll get you a short, customized list of the documents we will collect for approval.

STEP 2: Get Pre-Approved—this is the key step to success!

1. We’ll get your loan through initial underwriting for the strongest possible offer.

2. Preapproval is stronger than prequalification, and makes your offer more compelling to the seller.

STEP 3: Offer Accepted

1. You can lock your interest rate in.

2. You’ll get updated mortgage disclosures specific to the home you are purchasing.

STEP 4: Appraise and Verify Property

1. We’ll order and coordinate your appraisal.

STEP 5: Loan Processing & Underwriting

1. We’ll compile your full financial file for final underwriting review.

2. We’ll fill in any “gaps” (updated bank statements, paystubs, etc).

3. We’ll review your final underwriting approval and dot any remaining i’s.

STEP 3: Closing and Funding

1. Your final loan documents will be prepared and you’ll sign them at the escrow company. You will bring in your down payment at the same time.

2. The lender funds will arrive the day of closing and be combined with your down payment and the new deed will record. You’ll own your own home!
