Six Easy Steps

1. Application


You provide your broker with the most basic and essential information that he/she needs to start shopping for you.

(On your first visit, first phone call or through our online application if you wish)

2. Credit report


Your broker pulls your credit report with the results from three major credit bureaus, using the middle score and throwing the high and the low scores.

(Typically on your first visit or first phone call, once your SS# is provided)

3. Loan program


Your broker review with you all available loan programs and help you decide what is best for you. 

(Typically within 1 day from your application.)

4. Documentation


We provide you with a list of documentation. For example, bank statements, paycheck stubs, W-2's, tax returns. Your loan officer (broker) will review the types of documents you will need to provide to us based on your chosen loan program.

(Typically within 1-2 days from application)

5. Processing and Underwriting


Your lender verifies your documentation and that your loan meets all loan program guidelines. Additional documentation might be asked for at this stage as well.

(Typically takes 2-6 weeks)

6. Approval and closing


Once you're approved, we set a closing date where you will sign closing documents.

(Typically takes 1 week)
