GETTING STARTED WITH PRE-APPROVAL
One of our experienced Loan Originators will evaluate your credit, income and assets to determine what ranges of home prices you qualify for. Once this process is complete, you will receive a Pre-Approval letter that solidifies you as a strong buyer, to submit with your offers. Sellers are more likely to accept offers from Buyers who provide a pre-approval letter because they know your documents have been reviewed by a lender and it clearly states that you are capable of satisfying all financing aspects of the purchase contract.

The application is filled out and your initial disclosures have been signed. Now, our team will order the appraisal, title and any other inspection or certification needed for the subject property. Any verifications and transcripts needed to support your loan will also be ordered and then your loan will be sent to processing.

Loan processors will verify all documents relating to the borrower as well as the property being purchased. They will review all of the information in the loan file, request any additional documentation, and assemble an orderly and complete package for the underwriter.
- Loan file is reviewed
- Additional documentation is requested
- File is submitted into Underwriting for credit decision to be made
Once the processor submits the complete loan file to underwriting, it is checked to make sure the borrower and property meet all of the guidelines for the loan. The underwriter is responsible for approving or denying the loan application. Loans are sometimes approved with conditions. Once the borrower fulfills the conditions, the loan is “clear to close”.
- Loan File is Analyzed
- Confirm Borrower Meets Guideline Requirements
- Property/Appraisal is Evaluated
- Loan is Approved with Conditions
CLEAR TO CLOSE
Once the loan has been approved, the closing process begins. During closing, the property title passes from the seller to the buyer. A closing agent, usually an attorney or official from a title company, oversees this process. The closing documents are then signed, the loan is funded and the process is complete.
- Loan Conditions met and cleared
- Review Final Closing Disclosure and Documents for accuracy
- Borrower to Sign Closing Documents
