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

There can be little question that getting a mortgage loan is a complex process. You wouldn't be visiting our site if you could fill out a one-page loan application and receive the best loan funded in one day. But James M. Dix does the heavy lifting so you can concentrate on your life rather than the mortgage loan.

There are four primary steps involved in obtaining a loan.

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? Use the calculators on our website to determine your monthly payment amount. We'll also help you through different scenarios by asking a few simple questions. Based on standard lender guidelines, we'll get you a good idea of what kind of terms and loan program you can expect to benefit most from.

Step two: pre-qualify for your loan

This is where the process really begins and you save the most money. You will provide details on your current job, your assets, and your residence history. You'll give us information on your employment, asset, and residence history. We will pull get your credit report and score (only after you give your permission. After we've reviewed your information, we'll provide a pre-qualificaiton letter. 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 picking out your new home, we are researching the best loan for you.

Step three: apply for your loan

After you've signed an offer and the sellers accept it, you should apply for the loan. It couldn't be easier, and you can do it online, right here on our site. After the seller has accepted your offer and you have submitted your loan application, we'll order the professional appraisal on the home.
