How to Apply for a Mortgage

There are several steps to the mortgage application process, including:

  • Pre-Approval: We will review your financial situation so we can decide if you are qualified for a loan and how much that loan will be.

  • Underwriting: Our underwriter will review your application along with your other documents to ensure you and the property meet the requirements for a mortgage.

  • Conditional Approval: If we need a bit more information, we might offer conditional approval until we can confirm the application.

  • Closing Day: The mortgage process is complete and you can finish up the closing of your purchase.
