loan process

Getting a mortgage may seem very overwhelming We make it manageable

with your best interest in mind and keep you informed along the way.

What to expect

We Will be With you every step of the way — from application to closing

 

No two loans and no two borrowers are alike.  As a broker, I can work with many different lenders, allowing us to find the best loan product at the best rate.  

The process can seem a little overwhelming but we will help guide you throughout the entire process and answer any questions you may have.  See below for a generic timeline for Home Purchases and Refinancing.

You can also access our Document Checklist as a guide to which items the lender’s underwriters will require.  Each loan is unique and will typically require additional borrower information depending on your specific situation.

Ann’s Tips:

“Once your loan is processing, do not move money in or out of your bank accounts without a paper trail. Also, do not make large purchases, as this will affect your debt-to-income and credit score.”

“Submit your required documents when requested.  Waiting will cause delays when underwriters are reviewing your file”
