About the Mortgage Loan Process

Make no mistake, there's a lot involved when you get a mortgage loan. You wouldn't be researching mortgage loans if you could get a mortgage loan in one day with a simple application. But James M. Dix does the heavy lifting so you can concentrate on your life rather than the mortgage loan.

Getting a loan involves four major milestones.

Step one: determine how much you can borrow

This is a function of a couple things. How much of a monthly payment can you afford? 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. 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: complete a pre-qualification

This step is where James M. Dix can begin to save you money. You will give us information on your employment, assets, and 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, of course). We'll review all this info then provide a letter of pre-qualification. With this letter, your REALTOR® will negotiate the best deal for your new home. While you're shopping for a new house with your real estate agent, we find the best program for you.

Step three: apply for your loan

Once you have made an offer and the sellers have accepted, it's time to apply for the loan. Applying for your loan could not get much easier; you can apply right here on our site. After the offer has been accepted and you have applied for your loan, we'll order a professional appraisal on the home.

Step four: funding

The agents will find a title company to handle the "funding" and closing of the sale. We'll coordinate with this company to make sure all the papers your lender needs are in order, and you'll probably}likely sign all these papers at their officeWe do all the work to coordinate with this company to set your date to close. Because you won't need to worry about these details, you can think about moving, paint colors, carpet, and all the details of getting your new house.

You've answered a few questions, provided lots of information, applied online, and the next thing you know, you are moving in! James M. Dix is in the business of loans; you're not — so we take care of the details. Makes sense, doesn't it??
