How the Loan Process Works

  • W-2’s for all wage earners for the last 2 years
  • Copies of the one months pay stubs for all wage earners
  • Copy of Federal Tax Returns for the last 2 years (needed for self employed and investors only)
  • Copies of 2 months checking bank statements
  • Copies of the last 2 months savings bank statements (savings, 401(k), IRA’s, etc.)
  • Copy of a valid driver’s license or government issued identification
  • Copies of the payment coupons from your current mortgage and equity lines
  • Copy of current tax bill
  • Copy of Homeowners Insurance bill
  1. Apply and Get Pre-Approved
  • This process helps you determine the amount you can borrow. Sign and complete the loan application and
    disclosures. At this time, income and credit verifications are completed as well as checks on your assets and
    liabilities. During the loan approval process, it is important not to significantly change the status of any of your
    financial accounts.
  1. Compare Loans and Rates
  • Deciding on the loan amount and length of your loan period will help you determine if points and fees make
    sense. Do you plan to hold onto your property for an extended period? A fixed or a variable rate is one of many
    choices available to you. There are also several alternatives to points and fees. We can help you find the right
    loan program for you.
  1. Lock your rate
  • Work with us to lock in your rate. You may be required to submit additional documentation before the loan can
    be approved. Your loan application will go through the final approval process which includes verifying the
    information submitted on your application. It is important to postpone making any major purchases or changing
    the status of your financial accounts. Large deposits and withdrawals must be documented. If you make any
    significant changes in your application information, please let us know beforehand.
  1. Close your Loan
  • Review and sign loan documents. Check the documents carefully for the correct interest rate, loan amount,
    names and addresses. If you’re purchasing a property you may be required to bring a cashier’s check or to wire
    funds. Refinance loans on primary residences have a mandatory three-day rescission period.
