Getting a loan involves four major milestones.

Step one: Decide on your maximum loan amount

A couple of factors determine this amount. What kind of monthly payment are you looking for? What is the maximum you can borrow from a lender, given your income and credit history? You can get a good idea of your preferred payment abount using the calculators on our website. And we can guide you to the right loan amount and best program for you when you answer a few quewstions. Because lender guidelines are fairly standard, we can give you a good idea of how much you can borrow after a short conversation.

Step two: pre-qualify for your loan

You'll provide information on your employment, asset, and residence history. We get your permission to run your credit score and report. When we review all this information we will provide a pre-qualification letter. Handle it with care — it can be a great tool when you make your offer! Your agent will likely use your pre-qual (as they may call it) to make the best offer on the home you choose. While you're shopping for your new house with your agent, we find the best program for you.

Step three: apply now! We make it easy

Once you've made an offer and it's been accepted, you should complete the loan application.
