The Four Steps of the Mortgage Loan Process:The Loan Mortgage Process: Four Steps

Make no mistake, there's quite a lot involved in oder to get a mortgage. You wouldn't be looking up loan information if you could get a loan in a single day with a simple application. But Chris Caggiano - Grand Oaks Funding, LLC does the heavy lifting so you can concentrate on your life rather than the mortgage loan.

There are four main steps involved in obtaining a loan.

Step one: Decide how much you can afford

A couple of factors determine this amount. How much of a monthly payment can you afford? And given your unique credit and employment history, income and debt, and goals, how much will a lender loan you? Use the calculators on our website to determine your monthly payment amount. 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

This is where the process really begins and you save the most money. You will provide information about your employment, assets, and your residence history. You'll provide information on your employment, asset, and residence history. We pull your credit score and report. We'll review all this information then provide a pre-qualification letter. Be careful with this letter — it can be a useful tool for buying your new home! With this letter, your real estate agent will negotiate the best deal for your new home. The pre-qual letter gives you buying clout! While you're shopping for the home that's right for you, we're busy finding the loan program that's just right for your situation.

Step three: apply for your loan

Once you have made an offer and the sellers have accepted, you should complete the loan application. Applying for a loan could not be much easier; you can apply right here on our site. After the seller has accepted your offer and you have applied for your loan, we will order a professional appraisal on the home.

Step four: your loan is funded

The agents will find a title company to handle the "funding" and closing. We'll coordinate with this company to make sure the papers your lender will require are avaiailable, and you'll probably}likely sign all these papers at their officeWe do all the work to coordinate with the title company on your date of closing. Because you don't need to coordinate this process, you get to think about the move, paint colors, new carpet, and the fun parts of moving into a new house.
