Let us walk you through the mortgage loan process

1. Get prepared

Buying a home is a big commitment and you’ll want your finances to be in good condition before you start the process to ensure the best possible outcome. Gather your financial information, like recent tax returns, financial statements and pay stubs; your loan application will let you know what financial information is necessary. You should also review your credit score, take a look at your debt-to-income ratio and take other important steps to position yourself for receiving the best possible loan terms.

2. Decide what you can afford

Before you begin shopping for a home, take a look at your budget and current expenses to determine what you can afford. You’ll want to evaluate your monthly incoming and outgoing funds to see where a down payment, closing costs and your new mortgage payment might fit in.

3. Get preapproved

Once you know how much home you can afford, complete the application for a preapproval letter. The preapproval will let sellers know that you are a qualified buyer who is prepared to make a home purchase.
