Financing Your Home

If you haven’t experienced it before, the home loan process can feel overwhelming, but I will help you stay informed throughout the process, from pre-qualifying to closing. The first thing to do is consult with a mortgage specialist (or two). If you don’t already have someone in mind, I partner with some of the best local lenders in the industry, and would be happy to introduce you, so you’ll be taken care of.

Pre-Qualified

I will introduce you to my mortgage partner, who can help you determine your buying price range with confidence. Be prepared to dig into paperwork during this part of the process such as pay stubs, W2’s, and tax returns. The lender will do a full review and then tell you what you will be able to borrow in order to purchase a home. This is a vital step in the home buying process!

Application & Processing

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I FIND A HOME

When you find property you’re ready to buy, your lender will help you complete a full mortgage loan application, and talk you through the various fees and down payment options. The application is submitted to processing, where the documents are reviewed and appraisals and title examination are ordered. Then the loan is sent to an underwriter, who reviews and approves the entire loan if it meets compliance.

CLOSING
SIGNING AND FINALIZING THE DEAL

Don’t be surprised if you’re asked for additional documentation or clarification throughout the process. Once your loan is approved, don’t forget to set up homeowners insurance. Your documents will be sent to the title company, where you’ll sign for the new home and pay any remaining costs. Then the loan is recorded and you get the keys. Congratulations, happy homeowner!
