Make no mistake, there's a lot involved in order to get a mortgage loan. You wouldn't be visiting our site if it were possible to complete a simple application and receive a great loan check cut the same 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 and saving money.

Getting a mortgage loan involves four major steps.

Step one: Decide how much you can afford

This is a function of a couple things. What kind of monthly payment are you looking for? And given your unique credit and employment history, income and debt, and goals, how much will a lender loan you? You can get a good idea of your preferred payment amount using the calculators on our website. And we can guide you to the right loan amount and best program for you when you answer a few questions. Because lender guidelines are fairly standard, we can give you a good idea of how much you can borrow after a short conversation.

Step two: complete a pre-qualification

This is where the rubber meets the road and you save the most money. You will supply details about your current job, assets, and residence history. You'll provide information on your employment, asset, and residence history. We run your credit score and report. When we review this information we give you a pre-qualification letter. Be careful with this letter — it can be a great tool when you make your offer! With this letter, your REALTOR® will negotiate the best deal for your new home. While you're deciding on the home that's right for you, we're busy finding the loan that's just right for your unique situation.

Step three: apply for your loan

Once you've made the offer and the sellers have accepted, you should apply for the loan. It's very easy, and you can do it online, right here on our website. After the offer has been accepted and you have applied for your loan, we will order the professional appraisal on the home.

Step four: funding

The agents will find an escrow/title company to handle the "funding" of the loan and closing. We'll coordinate with this company to make sure all the papers your lender needs are in order, and you will likely sign everything at our convenient location. We do all the work to coordinate with the title company to set your date to close. Because you won't have to worry about these details, you can think about moving logistics, if you're going to repaint, new carpet, and the details involved in getting a new home.
