To Apply for your loan...
Once you select us to obtain your home loan, you'll be amazed at how quickly and simply the loan process can move. Before you know it, you'll have a mortgage that suits your lifestyle.
Throughout the loan-application process, we provide you with regular updates. You can also e-mail us with questions or new information or you can check on the status of your loan in your online borrower portal. And if you want assistance, a mortgage expert who can answer questions is just a phone call away.
Here's an overview of the loan-application process
STEP ONE -- Apply Now!
When you've selected a property and have a contract with the Seller, the next step is to complete your loan application, which can be done easily through our website. To get started, assemble your needs list items mentioned on the Getting Started page, then just click the Apply Now button on this page.
Once you've completed the application process, we'll assign a team to your loan and get the process started. A Loan Officer may contact you to obtain more information or direct you to upload materials in your borrower portal page. They will check for your eligibility in various programs and will see if everything is ready to move forward into the next stage of the loan process. The best way to loan approval is assembling all the needed parts in a timely manner, some we will get for you, some you will provide.
At the appropriate time we'll order a property appraisal for you, and all during the process, we may ask that you provide additional information or documents as they are needed. Buying a home is a complex process, but your Loan Officer and team will make sure to prompt you for materials or actions you need to take at all the right times.
STEP TWO -- Your Loan is Approved and Funded
Your Real Estate Agent or the Seller will designate an Escrow/Title Company to handle the funding of your loan, along with many other factors which make your purchase go smoothly.
We will coordinate with the escrow team and you'll sign the final papers at their office.
At every stage of the loan we try to make it simple, straightforward, cost effective, and quick.
