First, you’ll complete our online application!
Our online mortgage application will ask you questions about the home and your finances and takes about 20 minutes to complete. As soon as you’ve finished the application and hit the submit button we’ll be notified and a Mortgage Loan Officer will contact you (generally with 24 hours) to introduce himself or herself and to answer any questions you may have. Your Mortgage Loan Officer is a mortgage expert and will provide help and guidance along the way. At this time we’ll also pull your credit if you have authorized us to do so. At that time, we can then pull your credit report and obtain your FICO score and discuss loan programs and interest rates. If you are purchasing a home the Mortgage Loan Officer will also contact the Real Estate Broker so that they’ll know whom to contact with questions.
We’ll send you an application package and prepare your loan for closing.
The application package will be sent to you and will contain papers for you to sign and a list of items we’ll need to verify the information you provided about your finances during the online application.
We’ll order the appraisal from a licensed appraiser who is familiar with home values in your area. Depending on your finances and the loan amount requested, different types of appraisals are used. Most times the appraiser will need to view the inside and outside of the home. Sometimes they are able to do their evaluation from the street. Title insurance will be necessary. If you’re purchasing a home, we’ll work with the real estate broker or seller to ensure the title work is ordered as soon as possible. If you are refinancing we’ll take care of ordering the title work for you. We’ll use the title insurance to confirm the legal status of your property and to prepare the closing documents.
We’ll contact you to coordinate your closing date.
After we received the application package back from you and the appraisal and title work, we’ll submit your loan file to our in-house underwriting department. Our underwriters are the ones who actually review all the loan documentation and make the approval decision. During this time we’ll also be in contact with you to schedule your loan closing. If you are purchasing a home, we’ll also schedule the closing with the real estate broker and the seller.
The closing will take place at the office of a title company or attorney in your area who will act as our agent. Three (3) days before closing, we will provide you a Loan Estimate (LE) that will give you a complete breakdown of all the costs involved with obtaining your mortgage as well as the exact amount you will need to bring to closing (A official or certified check is required by the title company or closing attorney for closing, so please make plans get that before your closing date and time. Your Mortgage Loan Officer will contact you to walk through the final information so that there won’t be any surprises at closing.
That’s all there is to it! You’re on your way to the most convenient home loan ever!
