There are four primary steps involved in obtaining a mortgage loan.

Step one: Decide how much you can afford

A couple of factors determine this amount. What kind of monthly payment are you looking for? 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 abount 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 quewstions. 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 give us info about your current job, your assets, and your residence history. You'll give us your employment, asset, and residence history information. We will get your credit report and score (with your permission. We'll review all this info then will give you a pre-qualification letter. Your agent will likely use your pre-qual (as they may call it) to make the best offer on the home you choose. While you're shopping for the home that's right for you, we're busy finding the loan program that's just right for you.
